59 YEARS AGO TODAY

Today we recall the valliant acts of Commander Gordon P Chung-Hoon April 14, 1945 as he directed damage control efforts that stabilized our damaged ship during the relentless kamikaze attacks. Let us fondly remember our brave shipmates named below, who gave their lives for the freedom we enjoy today. Let us also remember, support and pray, for the safe return of our armed forces in Iraq and around the world.
