Two years after his gallant defense on behalf of his shipmates on board the WEST VIRGINIA at Pearl Harbor, Dorie Miller, Cook Third Class, had another boat shot out from under him, the U.S.S. LISCOME BAY: this time he wasn't so lucky.

The attached paragraph BELOW was clipped from a longer article that appeared in the pages of YANK MAGAZINE concerning the sinking of that baby flat-top off of the Gilbert Islands in the South Pacific.
