Oral History Interview with Paul Harless, July 10, 2012

The National Museum of the Pacific War presents an oral interview with Paul Harless. Harless dropped out of high school to join the Navy in 1939 and received basic training in Norfolk. Upon completion, he was assigned to the presidential yacht, the USS Potomac (AG-25) which brought the Roosevelts to visit Churchill, Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, and Princess Martha of Norway. In November 1942 Harless transferred to the USS John Rodgers (DD-574) and oversaw 59 sailors who had never been aboard a ship. Providing shore bombardment throughout the Pacific Theater, they did not lose a single man in their 12 battles. At Okinawa, Harless was credited with shooting down a kamikaze as captain of a twin 40mm gun. After the ship ran into a typhoon and nearly capsized, Harless attended the signing of the surrender in Tokyo Bay and returned home immediately thereafter, with special instructions from Admiral Halsey to prioritize the exemplary crew's discharge.

Oral History Interview with Leland Gwin, May 10, 2012

The National Museum of the Pacific War presents an oral interview with Leland Gwin. After Gwin's brother was captured on Corregidor, Gwin vowed to rescue him. In late 1944, when he turned 17, Gwin joined the Navy. Upon completion of amphibious training, he was assigned as an engineer to an LCVP attached to the USS Rockingham (APA-229). While landing troops at Okinawa, he rescued a crew whose landing gear failed and evacuated 150 wounded off a hospital ship that was attacked. Gwin was later assigned to pick up American POWs from Leyte, where he met someone who had been imprisoned with his brother. Gwin learned that although his brother survived the Bataan Death March, he had been worked to death in a coalmine. Gwin spent the next six months transporting soldiers home, making four round trips before by June 1946. He then received orders to Bikini Atoll but was granted leave to see his dying mother and was subsequently discharged. Several of the men who went in his place died soon after from exposure to radiation.
