“It was an exciting time that I will never forget. I was assigned to the USS Kennebago, a fleet tanker and filling station to the fleet. We were the essential part to the first line fighting ships, as we carried their fuel. Our ship supplied the last of the fuel for the battleships that destroyed the Japanese fleet in the battle of the Philippine Sea.”
