A few days after the attack, Lloyd, already an accomplished trumpet player as 2nd Trumpet Chair for the University of California Symphony, took his desire to serve his country, his passion for music, and his dream of attending the prestigous US Naval School of Music, and showed up at the Navy recruiting office in San Francisco.
Four months later, with his parents' signed permission, he joined the United States Navy as a way of entering their prestigious Naval School program. That decision would ultimately land him the position of Musician Second Class aboard the USS North Carolina as a member of the ship's band while it participated in the bombings of Saipan, Guam, Palau, Pohnpei, and battles throughout World War II's pivotal Pacific Campaign.
From Bugle Boy to Battleship is Lloyd's fascinating account of his two years at sea, as well as his hero's welcome return to visit the islands of Saipan and Guam 70 years later.
From Bugle Boy to Battleship includes the actual emails that also tell the story of the unique relationship between Lloyd and his "tour guide" --an author living on Saipan--who became inspired by their correspondence to help Lloyd document his story for this and future generations.
