The crew of the USS Lexington abandon ship following torpedo strikes May 9, 1942.  Note: This pic is a treasure! It is of the USS Lexington (the Lady Lex.) which was sunk during the Battle of Midway.  America had  always had a Lexington ship in their navy and after the Lady was sunk, The USS LEXINGTON, CV 16, was built in 1943 and sent out to sea, after shakedown cruise. It was called the “Blue Ghost” and was reported sunk by the Japanese 5 different times! My husband was a plank-owner and fought on the “Ghost” till the end of the war. At the Lexington reunions, we were fortunate to meet members who were on the first Lexington (shown above) and were picked up in the waters by the Battleship Yorktown. Mary Dell Jones.
