My father-in-law was Joseph Leinweber and he was on the Marblehead. He was burnt from head to toe when the phosphorous bomb first hit the Marblehead and he received schrapnel in his back & legs and lost part of both ears and when the 2nd bomb hit and he was burned again and thrown into the Java Sea his skin peeled off. Dr. Wassell saved his life on Java. Navy doctors told him he probably wouldn't live to 35 or ever have children. He was stubborn, he was an advisor to the movie, he got married and had 2 children. He had Joe Jr, my husband, and also had a daughter. Dad finally left this earth on Dec 15 at age 92 but meeting Martha McGee mad his day on an Honor Air Flight. His name was changed to Johnny Leinweber in the movie, but was shown chasing nurses because of his love of nurses.

Walter Jarvis, who was I believe a chief electrical engineer, was my landlord and friend for many years. He had mentioned being on the Marblehead, but no details. I found a website that described the battle and told that Walter Jarvis made his way down thru the ship to correct some electrical problems that saved some men and stopped a combination that would have caused additional explosions. Will try to relocate and post it very impressive article

We are so pleased to know there is a rememberence out there for my Dad! His wife Rosemary Hopkins is still on this earth living in the same house they lived in together in San Diego.
Thank you for honoring my Dad.

I originally saw the movie "The Story of Dr Wassel" as a 10 year old in 1944 and finally was able to see it again today. After viewing the movie I wondered what became of the Marblehead. This website answered that question. Many thanks.
