A Gift from Across the Globe

Record #:
Among the USS North Carolina’s missions that helped it to earn fifteen battle stars: rescue of navy aviators; destruction of two dozen enemy planes. A mission not par for the war course: the Christmas 1943 delivery of gifts to the crew’s siblings and children, orchestrated by Chaplain E.B. Wuebbens. The gifts’ unwrapping was captured on film for a crew longing for peace, represented in home and family.
