USS LAWS steaming with the Task Force.
USS HEALY DD672 steaming along side the Bronson. Note, the wire between the ships used to transfer mail and food between ships even when steaming ahead in heavy seas. Uncle Charlie referred to this as the "Bosun's line". He said there was a weight at the end called a "monkey fist" that was used to throw the line between the ships. Mrs. John Cooney recently saw this photo and recognized the sailor with the bandaged head as her husband, John F. Cooney. She remembered that her husband had spoken of cutting his head and the ship’s medical officer had to bandage it. What a coincidence!
