HONOR MY FATHER Paperback
by CLINT NYE
Honor My Father is a true story of how college men came to the US Navy as reservists, instructed by the officers from Annapolis, and teamed together.
It brings their many personal stories of interactions with my dad Air Defense Commander, serving on two destroyers USS Bancroft USS Goodrich with the naming of their actual crew members.
My story honors these silent, humble heroes. Thirty Benson-class destroyers were built from 1938 to 1943 and were the most vulnerable in the sea, protecting the fleet.
The officers and crews earned 174 Battle Star Citations, one Presidential Citation and two Navy Unit Commendations posthumously.
