A Little for So Much
From the diary of Donald F. Marple, a World War II U.S.
Navy Seaman, his son Barry tells a spellbinding story of his father’s military wartime combat from March 26, 1942 through
August 6, 1944. Seaman Marple served on two of the most legendary warships, the battleship USS Washington (BB 56) and the highly decorated submarine USS Bowfin (SS 287).
Sandwiched between fighting the Germans in the
northeastern North Atlantic and fighting the Japanese in the western South Pacific, Donald spent a few weeks at the
Naval Base in Key West, Florida, learning some of the basics of radar and sonar. While there, he became
a friend and confidant of Ernest Hemingway who, at the time, secretly worked from the Keys as a special agent
for the United States government.
