"“The FRANKLIN COMES HOME” The Saga of the most decorated ship in Naval History. By A. A. Hoehling. Nicknamed “Big Ben,” the USS Franklin (CV-13) was commissioned in January 1944. Dawn on March 19, 1945, Franklin, had maneuvered to within 50 miles of the Japanese mainland, closer than any other U.S. carrier during World War II. Suddenly, a Japanese plane came out of the clouds and dropped two bombs on the carrier’s flight deck. Several explosions and massive fires from ignited fuel tanks engulfed the stricken carrier. Franklin now lay dead in the water, and lost all radio communications. The casualties totaled 832 crewmembers, in what was the U.S. Navy’s second worst disaster in history."
