 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
My cousin Keith Addy was a deep sea diver aboard the U. S. S. Lexington when it was sunk by the Japenese during the Battle of the Coral Sea in WWII. He was a survivor and went on to serve 20+ years in the U. S. Navy of which he was very proud.
   
Other Comments:
After the Lexington was sunk he later served on board another ship that was sunk by the Japanese although I can't recall the name of this one. Again he was lucky to be a survivor.
