Let’s Not Forget The Merchant Marine on Memorial Day, OK?May 26, 2014
Thank you, Enchanted Seashells, for this reminder of the oft overlooked sacrifices of the Merchant Marine. Couldn’t have said it better.
I would be interested in seeing current data on civilian ships used in conflict today. I know that the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is the ONLY federal military academy to have students (midshipmen) in war zones during its entire history, up to and including the present.
