    In the modern age, discipline has become conflated with punishment, but in the 18th century it meant organisation; good discipline meant that the ship was well ordered, not that the men were soundly flogged. Far from using their Singer machines to patch up traditional forms of clothing, the grateful recipients used them for a completely different purpose: namely, to copy and wear Western clothing. But he is proud of his service, of the other sailors on the Arizona. The theme, in fact, is loneliness. They covered the growing seasons: cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots, grapes. Stratton grew up in the tiny prairie town of Red Cloud, Neb.

    Anderson would serve another 23 years before finally retiring once more. The smell of burned skin filled the air. More than 20 years earlier, he had earned his real estate license in California and had maintained it. Or the way they dressed?

    He helped evacuate wounded sailors and was forced to abandon ship by the commanding officer, despite his pleas that he wanted to find his twin brother. On the coffin lid had been nailed a large metal letter 'G'. In time, he felt no anger toward the Japanese, but he couldn't forget what they did. And my co-pilot, Lou Conter, saved my life.
