On this day August 14, 1943

On this day An American torpedo was mistakenly fired at the U.S. battleship Iowa, which was carrying President Roosevelt and his joint chiefs to the Tehran conference; the torpedo exploded harmlessly in the Iowa’s wake.

Holy crap can you imagine the person that gave the order to fire, and the sailor that hit the button. If he wasn’t tarred and feathered lol he had one hell of a story to tell. This had to be the largest naval mistake I have ever heard of.
