My uncle Lt. William Marsh was on the USS Ommaney Bay in the Sulu Sea, Philippines when it was hit by a Japanese twin-engine kamikaze on January 4, 1945. The plane crashed into the ships starboard side, and its bombs penetrated the hull to set fire to the hanger deck. Exploding ordnance and burning aviation fuel irreparably crippled her. She was abandoned and then sunk by the destroyer USS Burns.
There is no known grave for William Marsh; his name is listed on The Tablet of The Missing at the American Cemetery and Memorial in Manila, Philippines.
