|BW||Iron Ships and Dead Men|
Sam Goldman is the elder brother of Oscar Goldman. When Japan attacks the Pearl Harbor on Dec 07 1941, Sam is serving in the Navy in Hawaii. He has received a quarter of a million dollars from his commanding officer, and is to pass the money to a double agent at 8:00 AM. Sam is to meet the agent on the destroyer Handerson being repaired.
Sam boards the Handerson, while a civilian dockworker Duke happens to be alone with him on the deck. When the Japanese attacks, Sam and Duke must leave the deck, and the closest cover is a hole in the bulkhead.
Sam is killed by a bullet into his back and straight out. Duke discovers cash of thousands, may be half a million, of dollars, in the case brought by Sam. Duke picks it up and runs, but is soon hit on his leg.
Duke throws the case of money into a pump hole. After the attack stops, and smoke cleared, Sam is nowhere to be found, so is the cash ("Iron Ships and Dead Men").
