My father William H. Hitt was Gunner's Mate First Class when he was
discharged from the United States Navy. He was in 7 of the 9 major
battles in the Pacific Theatre. I have grown up listening to his
stories, just amazed that he lived through this horrible war, while many
men and women have not. Thank you for bringing my father home
William H. Hitt passed away on May 4, 2004 at the age of 79.
