Whiskey Pier, West Loch Disaster, the African American Soldiers that were on board the Navy LST 353 Vessel on MAy 21, 1944 in West Loch unloading Mortar at the time of the explosion of Six LST Navy Ships, there was no roster of this unit’s casualties included in the Navy report. And as we marked the 70th year anniversary of this Naval Accident, there is no Honorary Placard with a list of the names of the casualties. No Marble commemoration plate with the names of those who perished, to Honor the fallen Soldiers and other military service men who died that day.

We filmed , Four Star General Vincent Brooks of the Army Pacific Command, keynote speech to honor the fallen soldiers. Watch tonight, along with our tribute to the fallen soldiers and footage of the last standing hull of the LST 480 that is still visible out across Whiskey Pier.
