Hollywood Went to War

Sixty-sixth * in our series, Hollywood Went to War, is Larry Storch.
Storch served on the submarine tender Proteus during the war along with a radio operator named Bernie Schwartz, according to his Facebook page. They were on the Proteus in Tokyo Bay Sept. 2, 1945, and witnessed Japan’s formal surrender onboard the nearby battleship Missouri.

Schwartz later changed his name to "Tony Curtis". Larry recently passed away at the age of 99.
Larry, thank you for your service to our country! Rest in peace!
