—USS Lexington —Kamikaze, meaning "divine wind," was an echo from Japan's legendary past. It was the name of a wind god who was said to have sent a typhoon that repulsed a mongol invasion fleet heading for Japan in the year 1281. Nearly seven centuries later, the divine wind again became the anathema to an invading Armada.
