Irvin M. Beatty - WWII

Irvin enlisted in the Navy on September 10, 1941... less than 2 months before Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. He served on both the cruiser U.S.S. Savannah and on the battleship Wisconsin. During his time he saw a good bit of action and one occasion in particular was a really close call. September 11, 1943 he was on board the Savannah when Nazi planes seriously bombed the cruiser during the battle for Salerno, Italy. He did survive to fight another day.
