On station off Okinawa, the crew of the destroyer USS KIDD braced for impact as the Japanese Zero hit and exploded its bomb. April 11, 1945, had suddenly become a very long day.

This true story about a new Naval officer is told through his letters home to his wife, young son, and family. Historical facts and personal details are filled in by the author, his son. The officer's journey from induction and advanced training, through deployment to the Forward Area and the kamikaze attack, and finally to the retirement of the ship is detailed, revealing a true WWII Pacific adventure.
