Memorial Day was observed aboard LST 325 on Evansville's riverfront.
"It celebrates the end of hostilities in many different wars and it celebrates, of course, those who lost their lives in it. The LST was the most critical ship in the war. Winston Churchill stated after the war that without the LST's, they never would have won the war," Cerling said.
Cerling said he saw lots of LST's during the war, but was never aboard one. He was stationed on the battleship Massachusetts.
