Was searching for info on the Battle of Leyte Gulf. My father was a survivor of the battle. He was a fuse-setter for the No. 1 gun (5-inch) on the USS Heermann, the only destroyer which wasn't sunk. Badly damaged, she limped to port after this series of battles, mattresses stuffed in the holes in her bow to keep her afloat. My dad's now 80 yr. old.
