A note from The Virtual Wall
However, they are no less a casualty of the war than the infantryman who died of a hostile gunshot wound or the aviator shot down by hostile fire.
I did not serve with Petty Officer Maki; my combat missions were flown from the decks of USS AMERICA and USS CONSTELLATION. But I do know, and testify to, the dangers our enlisted men encountered every time they left their racks and started another 16 hour working day. And I know they earned my respect for the way they performed hazardous tasks in a dangerous environment.
