Eugene Woman Pays Tribute To Merchant Marine
Army. Navy. Marines. Army Air Force.
It took a lot of people to win the war that started for the United States 75 years ago today at Pearl Harbor. And the list of services gets even longer when you add in the Merchant Marine.
USMM ships and people helped supplies get through during the war, and the service suffered casualties at a greater rate per capita than any other branch.
Toni Horodysky, whose husband served in the Merchant Marine in WWII and Vietnam, started a web page tracking USMM history. She visits on this anniversary to increase our knowledge of Merchant Marine people and events.
