    Seeking newspaper article about the USS WASP CV-7

    WILLIAM LANGLEY Newbie

      My grandmother accumulated newspaper articles on the sinking of the USS WASP CV-7 in 1942 after her son (one of  the WASP crew & my uncle) was reported missing in action. I recall that it is a short article (3-5 paragraphs) that said the WASP was not taking evasive maneuvers prior to the submarine attack.  It said pilots on the carrier were making bets on when it would be torpedoed.  Our copy of the article has been misplaced by our family, so I am seeking another source for it, hopefully online.  Thank you.
