WWII Compartment

Jake's Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club Website AwardCaptain Herschel A. Pahl's WWII Hancock Memorial

When I was aboard the Hancock in 1963, I vaguely heard of the Hancock's WWII actions. It wasn't until I met up with Hersch Pahl that I finally learned that I served in a very Special Ship with an outstanding War Record! Since then, I have been trying to gather in as much History about the Hancock as I can possibly do.

Knowing Hersch has helped me tremendously. Make sure you visit our WWII Compartment, and read Hersch's Personal Hancock Memoirs. You will be changed forever. Also, make sure you sign our Guest Book while here, and let us know how you appreciate his and his shipmate's sacrifices =- Jake
