This is a fantastic shot. It really communicates the power of these ships.

My father, Marvin Jonas, was on the Pennsy when this picture was taken. He was also on board when she took the torpedo in Buckner Bay. He truly loved this ship and spoke of her fondly. He died in 2011 at the age of 85.

"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
