45 – The Jersey Brothers

In this episode we’re looking at three brothers all in the US Navy at the start of the war, and their remarkable story.

Angus is joined by Sally Mott Freeman, her book “The Jersey Brothers: A Missing Naval Officer in the Pacific and His Family’s Quest to Bring Him Home” follows her father and his two brothers through the war.

Bill Mott would start the war in FDR’s Whitehouse Map room, his brother Benny would be on the Carrier USS Enterprise and Barton was a supply officer based in the Philippines…

Their experience brings out how difficult it must have been for families at war.
