Hello Robert M.,

I quote from this link: RADM Hill is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy class of 1944. He served on the submarine USS Ray (SS-271) in the Battle of the Pacific during World War II. His ship suffered every battle experience that was recorded on film for the German U-boat in the documentary film, 'Das Boot,' including a sinking to the bottom of Lingayen Gulf with a recovery due only to the courage, bravery, and skill of its crew -- except that Hill's ship was not destroyed in the end.

Like you have noticed I put a ? on this thread.

Have a nice weekend.
Sincerely Yours
Volker Erich Kummrow
