Cedar Rapid Gazette, May 1945

This newspaper clipping is from Laura McKagan, Lt. McCune's daughter.

Here are some of Laura's Words:

Just when I think I've found every piece of Laffey material in my dad's
belongings, I find something else.  This clipping from the Cedar Rapid   
Gazette, May 1945.  Unfortunately, who ever clipped it out of the news-   
paper didn't include the continuation on page 5.  I'm not necessarily      
 sending it because of my family, (although my sister is very cute in it!)     
but because of my dad's quotes describing what he saw on April 16, 1945
while onboard the Laffey.
