JOE would joke that his last name was "Durana - rhymes with Banana".  He rode USS SILVERSIDES toward the end of the war and he quipped on many occasion that the crew was unhappy that there were no targets, no Japanese ships on the ocean but he also said that it was because of SILVERSIDES and other American submarines that there were very few Japanese ships still afloat.  JOE was a nice guy and was with us on our "Patrol" in Red China.
