" Bearden suffered a concusion and a leg injury while serving in the Navy during WWII. "
That is not a direct quote, but it is as far as Freedman listed Bearden's injuries were concerned. Gene actually suffered an open skull fracture and a shattered knee cap and knee and lower leg injuries that nearly led to an above the knee amputation. Part of Bearden's skull was blown away in the explosion. An officer saved his life by carrying Gene over his shoulder and placing him in a life raft. Then Bearden survived 48 hours at sea in the life raft before he was rescued. It was two Japanese torpedoes that hit Bearden's battleship and it took only 17 minutes for it tosink to the the ocean floor, killing hundreds of his shipmates. After undergoing serveral surgeries part of Gene's skull was replaced with aluminum and his knee cap was also aluminum.
