TODAY, AND FOREVER
by Elena Santangelo
of 1945, Seaman First Class Joe Chicco had already
experienced two years of war in the South Pacific. When his
ship, the light cruiser U.S.S. Mobile, left port in
California and sailed back into action, Joe was already
showing symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This
time, though, he packed a blank notebook into his duffle and
began to keep a journal.
This book includes that journal, and chronicles the history
of the U.S.S. Mobile, Joseph Chicco's life, and the PTSD
that plagued him for more than fifty years after the war.
