These are the exact steps Bill used to write his first military memoir, Bluejacket Odyssey, 1942-1946: Guadalcanal to Bikini. In 1989, he wrote for his U.S. Navy Military Service Records. The information triggered memories and questions. In June 1943, Bill was part of Task Unit 32.4.4 when it was subjected to two vicious enemy attacks off Guadalcanal within a week of each other. Curious about the outcome to the other ships in the convoy and their crews, Bill began to research for answers. Archival research and interviews with former shipmates and survivors from the other ships in the Task Unit led to the publication in 1997 of Bluejacket Odyssey, 1942-1946, a WWII military memoir combined with history.
