Default WW2 KAMIKAZE ATTACK ON THE USS LAFFEY!

This is pretty intense.

WW2 Kamikaze Attack on USS Laffey




The most fierce kamikaze attack in naval history,

but the men of the Greatest Generation kept their ship afloat.
Watch how low some of these attacks were.
Very hard to hit incoming aircraft at this profile.
Amazing film footage... NOT scripted; actual sights...
One side fighting to die, the other, fighting to live....

The USS Laffey is a BIW-built ship. Bath Iron Works is still making the finest fighting ships for our Navy to this day. I am proud to have been there 26 years so far, proud of the ships we have built, and thankful for the men (and now women) who have, and will, sail them into harms way.
