We Got Each Other Home. The Story of WWII's Legendary LST

Landing Ship Tanks (LST) were the lifeblood to the fighters in both theaters of World War II and the most famous of these was the LST 66. From her early days in the cornfield shipyard at Jeffersonville, to the days after the war when she awaited the ultimate fate at the Kaiser scrapyard in Seattle, this is the story of the most decorated Coast Guard manned LST. We Got Each Other Home provides an insight into the daily activities on board the 66 and riveting first-hand accounts and life stories from many former crewmembers who called this famous ship home.
