D-Day, rocket boats and Yogi Berra
St. Louis Post Dispatch
Excerpt of the article:
"The tiny craft were nicknamed rocket boats, but the young sailor who liked almost nothing more than reading comic books thought he heard “rocket ships” and volunteered. Who wouldn’t want to set off in a rocket ship, even on a dangerous mission? Besides, Seaman 2nd Class Lawrence Peter Berra, from St. Louis, was bored."
