Front & Center with John Callaway: The U-505 Submarine Story

Gordon F. Hohne, Zenon B. Lukosius, Wayne M. Pickels and Phillip N. Trusheim—veterans of USS Pillsbury and members the USS Guadalcanal's U-505 Boarding Party—and Keith Gill, U-505 Curator, Museum of Science and Industry, join John Callaway for this special episode of Front & Center with John Callaway.

This program provides amazing accounts of bravery, ingenuity, fortitude and persistence told with compassion and even humor by the members who served during World War II aboard the USS Pillsbury, part of the USS Guadalcanal Task Group 22.3. Each received the Silver Star for his gallant efforts in the capture of the U-505.
