Chew and Carter were alive in the aircraft, but the men were stunned, injured and swamped by the icy water. On the beach, four Sea Scouts, Will

He went back with Byrd in 1946 for Operation High Jump, then joined another U.S. Navy expedition there, Operation Windmill, in 1948. Harvey Morrissey, 16, a Sea Scout from Ocala, also came up for [Johnson's 100th] party. He had done a podcast with Johnson and was struck by his vivid stories of Antarctica and of his teenage sailing journey on the Pacific Queen. He [Johnson] recalls that on the first
  5. "It wasn't adults or sailors who've been on the water for 20 years that handled the situation. It was kids no older than 17 years old, 18 years old who used the training they received in such a program to make sure what could have been an absolute disaster did not turn into an absolute disaster," Marshall said.
