Memorial Day weekend
In searching about my Uncle - William J. Rezsek, listed as "missing in action" while being attacked by the Japanese in WW II, I discovered these emotional pics - on the USS Hancock - moments after he died. I will share them with his 88 year old brother, Eugene, and maybe help him bring peace and closer to his missing brother. Thank you.
