Was in the Navy from 69-73. My last duty station was the USS Gurke DD783, which was forward deployed out of Japan..did a lot of fire support, bird dogging carriers off Yankee Station, etc. For several months prior to this was assigned to a ship "welded" in "s--t" river (Mekong). Was telling my son about bring back a PBR in which we only found (wrist pin?) in the the remains of the boat. Was watching the history channel when my old commander was talking about this bit of metal that we found. He used it as a paper weight...which brought my wife and son to question just how "old" are you "Dad"...wife was 3 years old when I went to VN, so with 17 years difference between us history is a little more meaningful to me!
