((
Neville Ammen has to get out his scrapbook to bring back some of the memories of Midway. ((VOICE OF NEVILLE AMMEN/MIDWAY VETERAN: LET'S SEE, I WAS RIGHT IN HERE.))
It has been half a century since he was a pilot on board a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier.
Ammen was an ensign assigned to the U.S.S. Yorktown.
He was trained to fly a Douglas dive bomber. ((VOICE OF NEVILLE AMMEN/MIDWAY VETERAN: AND IT WAS VERY STURDY, IT WAS SLOW, BUT VERY ACCURATE.))
In early June of 1942, the Yorktown and other ships of the battered U.S. Pacific Fleet were preparing for battle near Midway Island.
They were facing a huge Japanese armada that included four aircraft carriers.
Although U.S. had a base on Midway, Admiral Yamamoto's real goal was to destroy the ships that were left in the U.S. fleet after Pearl Harbor.
The battle began on the morning of June 4th, and it looked like another Japanese victory.
Planes from the Japanese carriers bombed the island, starting huge fires.
The U.S. struck back with low-altitude torpedo bombers. Japanese fighter pilots shot down almost every plane.
But the heroic missions pulled the Japanese fighters down to low level... so that they were out of position when swarms of dive bombers from the carriers Yorktown and Enterprise showed up high overhead.
In six minutes, three Japanese carriers were on their way to the bottom.
On the Yorktown, Ammen was helping direct anti-aircraft fire while waiting for orders to attack the fourth carrier.
He never took off. ((VOICE OF AMMEN: THEY HIT US!))
Japanese planes hit the Yorktown with bombs and torpedoes. ((NEVILLE AMMEN/MIDWAY VETERAN: THAT'S WHEN I JUMPED . AND I'D JUST BOUGHT A NEW PAIR OF SHOES, AND I HAD TO LET 'EM GO DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN.)) Reporter: Who picked you up? ((AMMEN: A DESTROYER. WHEN I WAS IN THE WATER, I SAID "WELL, THIS SURE WILL MAKE A MAN OUT OF ME," OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. TALKING TO MYSELF.))
The Yorktown was later finished off by a Japanese submarine.
But Navy planes DID find the fourth Japanese carrier... and damaged it so severely that it had to be scuttled.
Japan had lost an entire carrier fleet in one day. ((NEVILLE AMMEN/MIDWAY VETERAN: IT WAS THE TURNING POINT OF THE WAR WITH JAPAN. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT.))
And because of the WAY it changed the war, Americans who were there at Midway now need some help from a scrapbook to remember how it was.
