Haven't been to Kali since 1998.
Ship reunion in Frisco 95...50th anniversary.
In 98 did a drive thru Yellowstone then Grand Canyon...& Crew of the ships homes.
Stayed in Pacific Palisades at Elizabeth Taylor's former home.
Tom Cruise & Nicole lived accross the road..
Goldie Hawn & the kids in helmets bicycle by.
Big Trouble in little China Kurt Russell is just around the corner.
This b awesome.
This Crewman from the ship was a LT JG Gunnery officer.
Horribly burned by av gas when the kamikaze hit the ship on April 22nd/45 on picket station off Okinawa.
Years of skin grafting....this guy is an example of Will
Here's me decades later benefit from meeting up.

One and only one of crew was Hispanic.
4 Black Stewards.
Spent part of a day with The Hispanic Bluejacket 95/Frisco.
He candidly shared the challenge of being alone.
The black Stewards were in officer country for duty.
His stock went up after he was injured in combat and returned to duty.
One of the Stewards was a boxer on the east coast.

One of DD 520 sister cans in 1943 was escort Winston Churchill to Halifax to meet Roosevelt.
USS Bell,....her deck log is day after day Captains mast,AWOL, brandish knife at officer,bread and water for a week.
Dozen or more in say 3 months with 2 put off the ship in chains.

Ships have each a character under then Commander.

So ya....DD 520 was a great ride as crew comment online.
Even into the early 60s with TF 77 and USS Hancock CV 19.

Actually right now back in 1958....Hancock's carrier group is defending Taiwan in the 2nd Taiwan Straits crisis.
