Memorial Day - The Way of Our Fathers and Grandfathers
For Memorial Day, Molten Eagle is pleased to share what readers have popularized by steady readership:
from November 30, 2006 The USS Copperfin's Historical Value
an actual wartime tribute to those brave submariners was announced at the end of the great, wartime film Destination Tokyo (1943).
from November 25, 2009 To All of Our Brave Sailors, Especially Submariners
The Kingston Trio's rendition of Woody Guthrie's The Sinking of the Reuben James ... Guthrie's song about the DD-245, the first U.S. warship sunk by U-boats in World War II.
The name of every sailor who perished is scrolled during this spirited ballad.
