my dad passed away last december, a vet of the US NAVY. he served on the PCS-1387, a minesweeper/subhunter on the east coast of the US from Virginia down to Gitmo. He even did some liberty in Havana, back in that day it was available. his battle station was the port side 20mm AA gun. he was the greatest man i ever knew. i love him more than i can ever say.
