Wes Crail, U.S. Navy
Forest Oaks of Spring Hill resident Wes Crail served in the U.S. Navy from January 13, 1942 to May 27, 1946. After months of vigorous training, Wes became a Torpedo-man Third Class (TM3).
One of Wes’ vivid memories of service was being asked to look for debris, with the rest of his crew, from the USS Indianapolis after it was sunk by Japanese troops in the South Pacific.
Thank you, Wes, for your military service.
