Stott, Donald

He was really proud to be assigned to a Battleship as this was prime duty as I recall. His brother Ray Stott was serving on the Arizona and they would be in Pearl together. Ray just happened to be off of the Arizona at some school or both brothers would have been killed in the attack. Someone told us that he was with Don up on the main deck but Don was in his shorts and went below deck to get his pants and never made it back up topside.
