Louie, I was at Tinian Island 26 July 1945. We went to Okinawa after that date. The storm occured after our arrival at OK, and before the A-Bomb drops. I was in Buckner Bay as late as 12 August 1945. A lot of events happened between 26 July 1945 and 12 August 1945. I don't know the date that we arrived at Buckner Bay. We went to sea soon after our arrival to ride out the storm.
