***********************************

Lieutenant Junior Grade Braseth was one of 253 crew Killed In Action aboard the U.S.S. Hoel (DD-533) when the destroyer engaged a superior Japanese naval force during the Battle of Leyte Gulf, Philippines. The Hoel received more than forty strikes from 14-inch and 8-inch shells from one battleship and one heavy cruiser of the Japanese Imperial Navy, and sank after the engine compartments were flooded.
