I don't get it.
It is just music that I post from time to time on when there is nothing being posted...Sort of hoping it gives one faith that something will come up.....Some time with a bit of commentary also...(The monitor for the site doesn't appear to mind.)...Like this one of Tuba Skinny.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2auDwCIIM3s or this one of Brubeck who I have had the privilege to hear live in my live time more than once... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvQmlr84_gM
Or like this that I am posting just now.
I had viewed the ending of this film several times on programs over the years without ever knowing its meaning...A friend of mine sent me the background and the film clip...It is very sad for me to view it...
Loyce Edward Deen, an Aviation Machinist
Mate 2nd Class, USNR, was a gunner on a TBM
On November 5, 1944, Deen's squadron
participated in a raid on Manila where his
plane was hit multiple times by
anti-aircraft fire while attacking a
Japanese cruiser. Deen was killed. The
Avenger's pilot, Lt.; Robert Cosgrove,
managed to return to his carrier, the USS
Essex. Both Deen and the plane had been shot
up so badly that it was decided to leave him
in the plane. It is the only time in U.S.
Navy history (and probably U.S. military
history) that an aviator was buried in his
aircraft after being killed in action....
Burial A Sea
WWII US Navy burial at sea of Machinist Mate (Gunner) 2nd Class Loyce Deen on USS Essex with flyover at end of service .
