Remembering the Naval Armed Guard on Veterans Day

The U.S. Navy Armed Guard was a special service branch of the U.S. Navy responsible for defending U.S. and Allied merchant ships, their valuable cargo and crews from attack by enemy aircraft, submarines, and surface ships. In World War II, nearly 145,000 men served in the Naval Armed Guard … including me, I’m proud to say. Their motto … “We aim to deliver!” And we did.
-Bill McGee, Gunner’s Mate, USN, and recipient of the Bronze Star
