Congratulations are in order for John Hersey's article on Guadalcanal in your Nov. 9 issue. His composite description of the average marine was most interesting.
The entire article deserves commendation, for the gallant marines can never be over-publicized!
- No censure was meant. However, that a Jap submarine was able to sneak through the Wasp's protecting screen and torpedo her when she was not in action, but merely maneuvering for position, must have been "shameful", even to her.--ED.
