Remembering Torpedo Squadron Eight
The following video is in memory of Torpedo Squadron
Eight (VT-8). The brave men of this squadron attacked the Japanese Fleet
at Midway in 1942 in antiquated TBD torpedo aircraft. The entire
squadron was killed except for one pilot, George Gay, who authored
the book, "Sole Survivor the Battle of Midway" (1980).
This Michael Cooper edited video is the actual color film of the
squadron and its men. The film was never released to the public and was
only presented to the widows of the officers and men.
