the US Navy in WWII. I called my Dad, hoping to get a quick, simple answer to a single question - what was the name of the last boat he was on. I always confuse the USS Trumpetfish with the USS Lionfish. I had animals climbing all over me wanting to be fed, but it was driving me crazy that I couldn't remember the name. And so I got the oral history thing. I shouldn't complain, there's not that many WWII veterans still alive today, but it was funny and frustrating at the same time.
