Naval History Blog recently caught up with Don Berger who joined the U.S. Merchant Marines in World War II when he was 16 1/2 and became a radio officer the following year. In addition to his service in WW II, Don served in Korea, Vietnam, and Gulf War I. Today, Don is volunteer aboard the SS American Victory in Tampa, FL – one of few WW II Victory ships available for tours and cruises.
