The U.S.S. La Porte (APA 151), The â??Pearl of the Pacificâ?: Naval Ensign, Elliott LaMonte Brainard, (D), USNR, Officer of the Line, Relates His Experiences During World War II

by T. H. Logwood

The U.S.S. La PORTE (APA 151), The “Pearl of the Pacific, attack transport was an amazing ship. “The Way It Was Then”, At That Time, Out There, Never To Be Again! In the Asiatic-Pacific Theater of War, during World War II. The Personnel Insight and Experiences of a twenty-year old, Junior Naval Officer and his ship, from Commissioning to Decommissioning.

As a very young, inexperienced, idealistic, young man, just out of high school at 18 years of age, then entering a local community college, having, been privileged to be raised by good, loving, caring parents, of a middle income family having one older brother and a twin sister. I felt blessed, adequately raised with self-confidence and protection with good sense and reasoning to do what I could for the war effort. I have taken time with careful attention to write this book, as authentically, as I have experienced it and to obtain verifiable information taken from and compared to, my copies of our ship’s log, those of some of my shipmates and their writings and logs, verifying, this information, as similar, to honest, accurate, professional writers on these subjects, in published volumes and by special, respected experts, of high ranking officers, as Admirals of the U.S. Navy and of the Bureaus of the Military.

I experienced and observed conflicts, confrontations, hardship and the afoul effects of war, not only those at war but those that contributed and supported us at war, on the home front: the change in life-style, rationing of many things, the physical, emotional and mental changes, that included fear, the lack of true information, the uncertainty and even the loss of loved ones.   

Please accept my apologies for any grammatical errors or imperfections, as I, have had no formal academic or literary training, for writing a book. At the time of this writing, born on 15 September 1924, at the mature age of 85 and counting, that may partially, account for any errors that you may find. 

The United States was a slow moving, traditional, cultural, appreciative, safe, law-biding society, just recovering from one of the worst depressions, it had ever experienced but being cautiously optimistic about the future. Then December 7, 1941 changed everything, and America has never been the same. This book is a history lesson, and the personal experiences of a young officer. God Bless our Service men and women.
