crewman of the destroyer USS McCall helped take her through 331,000 miles of
sea travel and 36 major and minor Pacific campaigns without any damage from
But of all the action in which their ship took part, the men of the McCall
remember as vividly as any of her battle engagements the day she made history
by resuing the now almost legendary radioman, George Tweed, from Guam.
It was the McCall that inched her way to within 400 yards of the shore
after responding to a mysterious series of heliograph signals from an inland
hill.Standing boldly by, the destroyer sent a small boat which picked up the
navy radioman, who had lived on Guam for more than two years duing the Jap

The McCall also is credited with picking up 36 fliers from the Pacific,
including five snatched almost from under Jap guns at ChiChi Jima.
