Post Burial At Sea

Here's footage you'll see only once in a
lifetime.

Tough times, tough people!

Here's a sea burial you may not have read
about :

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 the 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.
