Claud Aldrich:

"I'm 87 year man who worte about his war time, on a Destroyer in World War Two.

I was 18-years-old - an a country boy who got out of the country. I had to adapt the ways of the world fast.

I met a Marine last year who we had pulled from the water, 62 years ago. He was from a burning LST.

We were Kamikaze survivors."
