Descripton: This the story of Lt(jg) Al Miller, USMS, a Communications Officer, and his first voyage of WW II aboard the brand new Liberty ship, S.S.Smith Thompson. Via a typed, secret journal kept by Lt(jg) Miller, we see typical life aboard a WW II merchantman. Miller held an FCC 1st class radio license for 20+ years when the U.S. entered the war; having learned the skill via U.S.Navy service at age 17, 1916-20. This is a special glimpse by a mature family man who chronicled things likely to have gone unnoticed by a man 20 years younger.
