Fate during World War II: The USS Neosho, an oil tanker from United States Navy, plied the oceans for only three years before it was sunk. But during that time they experienced one of the toughest battles of World War II, including the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941 and the Battle of the Coral Sea, where Neosho sunk, May 11, 1942. In this last battle the ship was victim of seven direct hits from the Japanese, including a suicide dive by one of the bombers. One of her crewmen was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his efforts to save the ship. Superb seamanship and skilled damage control work kept the oil tanker afloat for the next four days. 

An American destroyer rescued the 123 survivors and to sink by gunfire the ship they had so valiantly kept alive against impossible odds. USS Neosho received two battle stars for World War II service.
