It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Bill Harrison. Bill Passed away August 7, 2018 at 10:30am. He was 96 years old. From the day he was rescued, Bill never stopped sharing what God had done for him on that raft. Bill’s love and story touched the lives of entire generations. From the oldest to the youngest, everyone could relate to Bill’s story and loved his passion and joy for God.
It is sad that Bill will not be with us here anymore, but nothing compares to the joy we feel knowing the hero’s welcome he is receiving in heaven right now.
We miss you Bill!!!
World War II came to a conclusion on August 14, 1945, eight days after the first atomic bomb was dropped on Japan. The men of the U.S.S. YMS – 472 were already having thoughts of home, family and togetherness. The weight of the war had finally been lifted, they would soon be going home. Not a single one of them suspected they would soon be introduced to a new type of enemy.
Six Days on a Raft is the incredible account of Navy Veteran Bill Harrison, who survived six days and nights on a raft in the south pacific after his ship sank. As his buddies slipped one by one into the ocean, Bill fought through impossible odds to survive and hold on to his sanity while battling the raging demons of fear, hunger, depression and hopelessness. This is his story of true faith and survival.
