Burial At Sea 72 years ago.
 
Here's footage you'll see only once in a lifetime. Just imagine being there to witness it!
 
Tough people, tough times!
 
Loyce Edward Deen, an Aviation Machinist Mate 2nd Class, USNR, was a gunner on a TBM Avenger.
 
On November 5, 1944, Deen's squadron participated in a raid on Manila where his plane was hit multiple times by anti-aircraft fire while attacking a Japanese cruiser.
 
Deen was killed.
 
The Avenger's pilot, Lt.; Robert Cosgrove, managed to return to his carrier, the USS Essex.
 
Both Deen and his plane had been shot up so badly that it was decided to leave him in the plane. It is the only time in U.S. Navy history (and probably U.S. military history) that an aviator was buried in his aircraft after being killed in action.
