These courageous fighting men participated in the most important U.S. victories at sea including those fought in the Pacific. In 1942, the Pacific Fleet ended Japanese threats to Hawaii by forcing back the enemy fleet off Midway. In 1944, a U.S. force of 169 warships fought the Japanese in the Battle of Leyte Gulf, eliminating Japanese naval power.
