Lexington. She lived as gloriously as she fell, her memory gave all who remembered Pearl Harbor and saw her noble end the strength to carry on the defense of the United States of America. At the height of the attack against the Lex on May 8, 1942, the carriers batteries filled the sky with bursts of antiaircraft fire, fighting off the combined attack of dive bombers and torpedo planes- the decks were filled with the cries of the wounded and the dying. Those who took part will never forget the legendary exploits of the valiant and daring men of the U.S. Navy who participated in the hazardous and crucial battle of the Coral Sea.
