What about the Merchant Marines?

Hempstead, NY

My uncle joined the Merchant Marines before our involvement in World War II. The service of the Merchant Marines gets NO recognition at all. WHY? They brought materials, arms and ammo to England while it was at war. Two ships were torpedoed from under my uncle and he kept going back to sea. If that isn't heroic, nothing is.
