Hoye R. Midkiff
USS West Virginia
Hoye Midkiff was a Pearl Harbor Survivor on the USS West Virginia
His brother was also stationed there, so after Pearl Harbor was
attacked, he could not find him. He had no clue if he was dead or alive. So regardless,
he was on duty and had to proceed with orders. They had to go out into the
ocean on boats and patrol the waters by checking all incoming boats and
passengers. They were told that anyone who could not be identified was to be captured
