USS West Virginia
Robert Sutherland, RM2/c, born May 13, 1924, Pontiac, IL, entered
the service in May 1941. He trained at San Diego NTC; was assigned to
the Wee Vee in June 1942; and was part of the crew that raised her then
sailed to the South Pacific so she could get even, for what had
happened December 7. They thought she did quite well!
