of Mr, and Mra. Marcua W.
Wutson of 2301 Blohn atroet.

be tho youngest of Klnmuth'a

By WESTON WATSON
As Told to
Bob Leonard
The first Japanese) attack on
the Lex blow out tha gun next
to my station, killed one man
and washed another overbourd
but our gun got two plnnoa bo
fore we also were put out of
action. ,
Aa a aeaman aecond class I
bellovo I was one of the young
est of the ship's 2800-mun crow
my buttle station was on a
port side gun from where I
was fortunute enough to aee the
entire attack from the time it
a tar tod at a llttlo after 11
o'clock until it ended 20 min
titoi later.
First, to give you my back
ground, I enlisted In the navy
at Medford on February 10 of
tills year and was sent to train
ing school for several weeks, 1
was later , assigned to tho Lex
ington and tha Coral sea battle
was my first engagqmont.
We worn at bnttlo stations
when the first blow jtruck. Tho
first Jop torpedo hit almost di
rectly below our gun. Tho sec
ond burst in almost the aamo
placo'and accounted for the gun
next to ourar killing one of tho
crow and washing another ovor
tho aide. ....
Succeeding lilts wounded one
of our crew and started a fire
In tha boat pocket which we put
out but which also put ua out
of action.. , .,r..'- "
But before that wo blasted
y
two p 1 a n e a just after they
dropped their fish off the port
side, As they b a n k o d away
from tho Lex wo hit 'cm broad
side. Both crashed Into the sea.
Tho pilots woro not raacued.
When tho bnttlo waa ended
our crew went to the flight
deck where several of ua were
assigned to put out smull fires
which hud broken out immedi
ately bolow.
Bundwlchea were passed out
but wo wero never fur from
buttle stations. Wo didn't know
when another group of planea
might ottack, ,
Later In tho aftornoon the Ice
cream wus broken out on the
flight deck and wo all managed
to got aome.
I waa on the port aide when
tho "abandon ship" order came
shortly after 4 o'clock. I in
flated my Ufa Jacket and slipped
down a line Into the water
whore I waa to be for almost
three hours before being picked
up by a whale boat,
It took almost an hour and
one-half to get away from the
ship's sldo, aa tho current kept
banging mo back into the hull.
Lator I drifted around among
other sailors keeping up a con
versation aa wo floated. The
wator waa warm and calm.
I waa still fnlrly cn to the
Lex when It began to blaze on
the topside.
Around 7 o'clock It was still
daylight we were picked up
by a whole boat and taken
aboard a destroyer. At almost
the same time, a terrific blast
tore tho Lex amidships aa tho
fires reached the high octane
gaa storago tanka and, a little
Inter, the warhead lockers
(Warhooda are tho forward
porta of torpedoes the part
carrying the explosives),
By that time, however, I was
safe aboard tho destroyer. I was
later transferred again and
brought to the United States.
My present leave expires this
Saturday when I'must report
for duty at a west coast port,
My next assignment Is unknown
but I hope it's again to" carrier
duty.
