To honor the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, read about Rhode Island’s extraordinary contribution to the war effort: John F. Kennedy’s training as a PT boat commander at Melville; George H.W. Bush’s training as a pilot at Charlestown; radar used on night-flying aircraft developed at Jamestown and tested by elite pilots at Charlestown; at Davisville, Seabees developed a pontoon aircraft landing field tested on Narragansett Bay; and Scituate was home to the nation’s most successful spy listening station. Read that and much more at Christian McBurney, Norman Desmarais and Varoujan Karentz,Untold Stories from World War II Rhode Island (History Press, 2019).
