Every Moment Mattered... the life of Cassin Young, Captain, USN Navy (Deceased)
Time & Location
About the Event
The presentation is about a story Bob MacPherson has been working on for six years, the Life story of Captain Cassin Young, USN, Medal of Honor Awardee.
Cassin Young was a career Navy submariner but was remembered more for the two events that happened in December 1941 and November 1942. His life story reflected the transition of the US Navy from the age where battleships were king to the dramatic days of the first year of World War 2 where the Navy had to learn to fight without most of them.
He was in exactly the right place at the right time during Pearl Harbor and was tragically lost less than a year later in one of the most infamous and lop sided naval battles of the war. The whole story has never been told in writing before and he plans to have it published by the end of this year.
