The Next Feast...
Robert J. Sherertz
author of "A Hero Among Millions" at Inlet Affairs.
"Lt Commander Jack Sherertz joined the Navy as a 90-day Wonder Ensign and began World War II on the USS Nevada on December 7, 1941. He was then transferred to PT boat Squadron 1 and to Midway Island in time for the Battle of Midway. He was reassigned to PT boat Squadron 34, shipped to England and participated in D-Day and the defense of the Channel Islands. Over the five years that he served in the Navy he lost six fellow Ensigns at Pearl Harbor, fifty other men on the USS Nevada, organized the funeral for eleven marine pilots on Midway, and ordered sixteen men to their death off the coast of Jersey Island. He had at least 83 good reasons why he never talked about the war, but finally, at the age of 91, he decided to tell his story … to his son. Bob Sherertz, Murrells Inlet resident and Grand Strand Regional Hospital staff physician, was a committed recorder of his father's World War II experience. His medical research experience came in handy filling in the few gaps in his father's story and confirming what was said in every way possible. But mostly, as in the oral traditions of old, he listened carefully and wrote down the story for future generations."
