My father John R. Hostvedt AACS of Milwaukee, WI (deceased July 9, 1968) was a survivor of the Rohna. He spoke very little of the events, only saying he was in the water for about 8 hours, until pulled aboard another ship when he promptly passed out. He was given hot tea, the best tea he'd ever tasted. Thank you for this website!
