Hello,

I'm a journalist and author working on a book for Simon&Schuster on the events leading up to the Japanese surrender aboard the USS Missouri on Sept. 2, 1945. I would like to try to contact and interview as many surviving crew members as possible who witnessed the surrender ceremony. If anyone reading this post is aware of how I might obtain a list of the names of surviving crew members -- or if anyone knows of a crew member who might be available to be interviewed -- I would greatly appreciate your help.

I can be reached directly at romeshratnesar@gmail.com

Sincerely,

Romesh Ratnesar
