Freedom Fighters: Gordon Kimbell

Posted: Updated:
EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

By Joan Hallmark

Gordon Kimbell was 17 when he joined the Navy in 1943, not realizing he would spend the next few years of his life under water instead of on top of it.

During the course of World War Two, Kimbell's submarine The Lizard Fish sank Japanese supply boats, as well as a sub chaser in a Java harbor.

Kimbell's daughter, Janet Kimbell Gehring, has also served in the Navy, recently retiring as a Commander.
