  2. Lieutenant Junior Grade Laboon was awarded the Silver Star for his heroic actions on USS Peto's (Gato class Sub) tenth war patrol. Following pick-up of a downed American pilot near Honshū, the crew searched for his wingman. The second aviator was soon spotted, but the water was shallow and mined, preventing Peto from maneuvering closer. To make matters worse, they were under intense enemy fire from a Japanese shore battery. The submarine's commanding officer called for a volunteer, and without hesitation, LT(jg) Laboon dove off the submarine. Swimming through the mined waters, he rescued the pilot.

    He later became a Priest post war and served with the 3rd Marine Division in Vietnam.

  14. The father of a childhood friend was a USN officer during WW II and spent the war on convoys from Nova Scotia to the UK or Russia. He said he always got a kick out of the names of the RN ships in the convoys: Petunia, Primrose, Jonquil, Pansy, Dafodil, Dahlia etc.

    He never made fun of the RN sailors aboard and said the convoy duty was pretty grueling
