Tommy Guns, Fists and Coffee Cups: USS Buckley Repels Nazi Boarders

The story brings new meaning as to why maybe those thick ceramic mugs from that era were called "Victory Mugs". 🇺🇸👍

And there was also a coffee maker tossed at them too.
"Victory Mugs?" - "Victory jugs" could be another matter though? :)
Read "U.S.S. Borie's Last Battle" by John Hersey. From the compilation "United States Navy in World War II" by S.E. Smith. Also U-Boat Killer or The Golden Horseshoe. All amazing, first hand accounts of action in the Battle of the Atlantic.
