US Navy Pearl Harbor hero Floyd Welch passes.

We are sad to announce Floyd Welch passed yesterday 8-19-2020. Hero of the Mighty Oklahoma. The USS Oklahoma was not Floyd’s ship, but a sister to his ship the USS Maryland that was tied next to the Oklahoma. Floyd  just grabbed blueprints of his ship and then jumped over onto the overturned hull of the Oklahoma and cut holes in her bottom , missing the fuel tanks. Floyd’s fast thinking and action saved the lives of over 30 sailors trapped below. BZ shipmate. Hero at boatjobsonly.com too.
