    Burial at sea

    Footage you'll see only once in a lifetime. Just imagine being there to witness it! Tough times, tough people!



    Here's a sea burial you may not have read about:



    Loyce Edward Deen, an Aviation Machinist Mate 2nd Class, USNR, was a gunner on a TBM Avenger. On November 5, 1944, Deen's squadron participated in a raid on Manila where his plane was hit multiple times by anti-aircraft fire while attacking a Japanese cruiser. Deen was killed. The Avenger's pilot, Lt. Robert Cosgrove, managed to return to his carrier, the USS Essex.



    Both Deen and the plane had been shot up so badly that it was decided to leave him in the plane. It is the only time in U.S. Navy history (and probably U.S. military history) that an aviator was buried in his aircraft after being killed in action.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because they are protected by the men and women in the armed services.
