Thanks for this. We have so much to learn about us. I sometimes wonder about the things we will never see or hear about. Never to be discovered then washed away forever like tears in rain.

Doris Miller/Date of death
Sadly, Doris Miller died in action on November 24, 1943, on board the USS Liscome Bay in the Pacific Ocean. The newly constructed ship was an escort carrier, and a single Japanese torpedo sank the vessel off the coast of Butaritari Island. Two-thirds of the ship's crew died with the ship because it sank quickly.Jun 12, 2018

Didn't Doris Miller get killed? For what?

I just realized something. His first name was Doris. He really must have loved his mother. He also had to be either extremely tolerant and unbelievably patient or probably after rendering a couple of bullies totally unconscious a time or two the word got around to just call him D or Mr. D depending on his age and mood at the time.

I hope you don't mind the intrusion.
