I was on the USS PC_476 in WWII
13 June 2007 | by lannie1See all my reviews

Today,13 June 2007, was my first viewing of the movie and I was really excited since I never knew that it had been made. The PC476 was in the Pacific from Guadalcanal to Australia to New Guinea to Leyte in the Philippines. I was Signalman 3rd Class and worked on top with the signal lamps. Our PC had two GM 1600HP diesel engines and we also had equipment to desalinate water which just barely sufficient to meet our daily needs except for showers. I spent two years aboard from Oct 1943 to Oct 1945. I really enjoyed the movie and it did capture the essence of the required intimacy of the 60 enlisted and 5 officer crew on a vehicle 173 feet long and 21 feet wide at the beam.
