Lost 74 on Memorial Day 2015

I Am Remembering Them Today
Their names need to be on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington.

That they do. May they rest in peace.

+1 NFO. Seems to me, outside of aircrews, when the Navy suffers casualties, it is always a lot of casualties.

Yes, their names should be on the wall. Thank you for pointing that out.

Thanks, Old NFO

WSF, that is true. The front half went down in three minutes and very few made it out from three decks down. Some who did still drowned or was sucked down with the sinking. Too many men in tight quarters, unlike Army or Marines who are spread out more.
