sending the piece and its five-inch gun to the bottom with as many as 70 men trapped insideOn Wednesday maritime scientists announced that they had found the sunken stern and its big gun encrusted with sea growth in 290 feet of water amid one of World War II’s most untouched battlefieldsNo remains of sailors were seen or recoveredThe bulk of the Abner Read remained afloat that night It was later repaired and sent back to the battle In 1944 the ship was hit again this time by a Japanese suicide plane and sank off the Philippine island of Samar"It was a bad-luck ship" said a 94-year-old sailor who survived both attacks "But I came through it so I was lucky A lot of people didn’t "The story of the Abner Read which was named for a Civil War Navy hero begins at Kiska where it had been dispatched after its commissioning in 1943And there 75 years later on July 17 underwater archaeologists found the 75-foot section of the stern where scores of men probably remain entombedThe expedition was funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and run by Project Recover a partnership of the University of Delaware the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the BentProp ProjectIts aim was to study the almost untouched underwater battlefield of the World War II fight between the United States and Japan for the Aleutian Islands The Japanese seized Kiska in June 1942 and weren’t driven off until July 1943 after relentless shelling and bombing by US forcesAlong with the Abner Read’s stern a dozen Japanese ships two Japanese submarines and numerous downed American airplanes are believed to be in the local waters according to Mark Moline of the University of DelawareAnd that in part was what drew Project Recover which focuses mostly on locating World War II aircraft lost at sea said Andrew Pietruszka of the Scripps Institution Project Recover’s lead archaeologistThe project’s attention was first drawn to a downed B-24 bomber near Kiska but it expanded after the team learned about the Abner Read he said Tuesday in a telephone interview"I knew almost nothing about Kiska and the Aleutian campaign so it caught my attention" he said "There’s got to be shipwrecks and there’s got to be submarines [This is] such an unknown part of the war and in such a remote area""We wanted to tell that story" he saidThe project got a $600000 grant from NOAA and spent two weeks with a research vessel at Kiska in JulySeaman first class Daryl Weathers 19 a doctor’s son from Los Angeles was in the radar room on the bridge standing the midwatch – midnight to 4 am"Everything was peaceful" he said and the exhausted skipper Cmdr Thomas Burrowes had just gone to his stateroom for a much-needed restBurrowes had already lost one ship the USS O’Brien to the Japanese the year before and was reluctant to leave the bridge"I got a responsibility here for every one of these kids’ mothers to bring them back home again" Weathers recalled him saying"I was very touched by that" he said "But he went down into his cabin and about thirty minutes later ‘Bam’ ""We’d been doing figure eights about three four miles long" he said Tuesday in a telephone interview "We’d been doing that for a day and a half and were becoming relaxed because there was no report of anything"Scores of sailors were asleep in the aft compartmentsWhen the mine went off "the whole ship came out of the water" Weathers of Seal Beach California said A huge flash appeared on the radar screenPart of the stern was all but severed and dangled by the starboard screw shaft for a few minutes before it broke free and sank "If you took a cigar and hit it with a baseball bat and broke off the end that’s the way it looked" he saidThe crew went to battle stations Weathers ran to his an antiaircraft gun But there was nothing to shoot at so he started helping rescue men who had fallen into the frigid water"It was kind of a bad thing" he said The sea was coated with fuel oil "Everybody was so slippery you couldn’t get a hold of anybody"The rescuers used life jackets to hook men in the water and then haul them in "We pulled up a few" he said But "they didn’t last too long in the cold water You weren’t good for more than 10 or 15 minutes"Seventy-one men were lost the Navy said Weathers said he knew most of them The entire crew numbered about 330 Burrowes survived and went on to a higher commandThe blast had also set off the ship’s smokescreen mechanism which was belching toxic smoke and choking survivorsThe Abner Read was now powerless and adrift near the shore Plus there might be other mines in the areaAnother destroyer managed to tow the ship out of dangerThe vessel was later towed to Bremerton Washington where it got a new stern and was returned to the warOn Nov 1 1944 the Abner Read was struck by the suicide plane and sank in about 30 minutes All but 20 members of the crew were rescued Weathers was burned but survived in part because a shipmate gave him his life jacketThe multi-beam sonar scans of the flat sea floor west of Kiska on July 17 had quickly picked up an object Pietruszka and the other scientists aboard the research ship Norseman II spotted it right away This had to be itThey sent down an underwater robot with cameras and there looming out of the dim light was the encrusted profile of the Abner Read’s sunken five-inch gun"It’s like scoring a touchdown" Pietruszka said "You see it come on the screen and the whole room goes pretty nuts"But things soon got quiet"It’s a very humbling experience" he said "To be part of even without the recovery of these remains [something where] families can find some solace that somebody found where their loved one is that you can put
