    I never knew we made the newspaper! This was my ride to Vietnam and back. Upon returning she was decommisioned and sold to the Argentine navy. Steaming through 3 wars, she just kept on plugging...all 14 knots of her! Just thought I would share. Click on Final Homecoming at the left.

    We carried to Vietnam 2 gunboats in our well deck. USS Tucumcari PGH2, and USS Flagstaff PGH1. This was both of their first trips to war. We also brought them home, after a stellar performance.
