Don Tishman understands the hardships veterans live with.

“Our submarines had eight watertight compartments,” recalled Tishman, who served on three submarines in the Pacific theater during World War ll. “They ran on batteries. When water got on the batteries it created chlorine gas that would kill everybody. If any part of the submarine leaked water, they would lock it off with people in it. You’d hear them knocking on the door, calling you all kinds of names you can imagine. Some of them got better, and some didn’t.”
