Taking an Oral History in the Engine Room

Braye Cloud of the North Little Rock Mayor's Office conducts oral interviews of Don David (center) and Bob Howard. Howard is in the engine room where he worked aboard the 394 from 1957 until 1960.

We heard a great story that involved the following items, in no particular order:

1. Bourbon filled fruit cake.
2. Several sailors with a belly full of number 1.
3. A tank. Yes, a real tank, probably a Sherman.
4. Naha, Okinawa.
5. Army MPs.

Perhaps some of those involved might want to fill in the blanks, or perhaps not, although I think the statute of limitations has run out on this particular episode of Navy adventure!
