Paul Mathieu 12/17/23 - 8/11/02 Portland ME. Calais Advertiser, Dec 30, 1942 p. 1: "Paul Mathieu, who enlisted in the U. S. Navy, last spring shortly before he was due to graduate from Calais Academy, spent Christmas with friends here. The likable youngster took part in the North Africa invasion and his ship was sunk after being hit with three torpedoes, one of them being of the aerial type. Young Mathieu is a Pharmicists Mate, and was one of the last to leave his mortally wounded ship and had to swim over 100 yards before gaining a precarious berth on a life raft. Undaunted by his terrifying experience, the youngster is looking forward to the expiration of his 30-day furlough and a return to active duty once more."  [Provided by Sharon Howland]
