Surviving Radar Crew

April 1945

Back to Photos List

Surviving members of the USS BUSH radar crew pose aboard the USS HENRICO enroute to the States for survivors leave. These are the men who usually knew before anyone else when trouble was approaching. The work of men like these, and ship's like the USS BUSH, helped provide allied invasion fleets with advance warning of enemy attack. Their efforts helped minimize the loss of allied men and material ashore and at sea. No where was this work more dangerous than the radar picket line off Okinawa in the spring of 1945.
