9. The Intrepid Survived Numerous Kamikaze Attacks
A total of 270 men made the ultimate sacrifice on the USS Intrepid: a full list of the names can be found on the museum’s website. The majority of kills took place during World War II, with several perishing in kamikaze attacks on the ship. The carrier’s “Darkest Day” happened on November 25, 1944, when two kamikaze attacks resulted in the death of 69 men, which is by far the most casualties suffered in one day on the ship, according to the museum.
