In honor of all the brave men who served aboard her. My brother, U.S. Marine anti-aircraft gunner Joseph F. Bruno survived the attack and was rescued from the water and continued to serve until the end of the war. I later served in the USAF from 1965-1969, including one year in various aerial port squadrons in Vietnam. I later did part of my clinical psychology internship at Brecksville, OH VA Hospital while we were developing the first PTSD unit in the VA system. I went on to a career as a school psychologist. Joe went on to a career in carpentry. Two sons of proud Italian immigrant parents who volunteered to serve their country during times of war.
