Huguenot Stanley J. Singer sjsinger sjsinger@flash.net I was on a Liberty boat of WWI vintage within a convoy about a day and half out of New York Harbor when we were allegedly attacked by a U-boat. The destroyers in the convoy went to work and tore up the ocean floor and apparently the U-boat fled the scene. It was September 1944 and I was returning to the states after flying over 100 missions in the European theatre. I didn't want to lose it all in the ocean and was mighty glad for the destroyer escort.
