When my ship was going from one port to another I didn't know exactly where we were, but I knew we were "un der way' to somewhere

If I had stood watches on the bridge like a Quartemaster I would've known exactly where we were at all times. But I was a airdale who worked on the back end of the ship

That’s good Dave. As it was with so many ships and submarines after Pearl Harbor was attacked. Sailors headed out into the Pacific, to Islands, straits and coves and parts of the Pacific unknown to most who manned the warships. Only the higher in command were given the orders and many of the crews only knew of their destinations when they were almost there. All they knew was that they were going to fight a Great War at sea with the Japanese Empire. And the loved ones at home watched and waited.
