Say a little prayer for the USS Laferty

Recommended Posts

Many of you have been to Patriot's Point to visit the Yorktown. While there you may also have toured the USS Laffey, a WWII destroyer. The ship that wouldn't die was struck by 3 kamakaze pilots and two 500-lb bombs. Say a little prayer for her on Aug. 19 for high tides and light winds. She will be towed to Georgetown, SC for major repairs to the hull.(This message has been edited by HobcawChaos)

My family and I went aboard this ship last October. We met a veteran who served on her, and he kept our attention for some time with his WWII stories. It's a fond memory of us now.

 

Best regards,

Eagle 1977

I am a naval history buff and am very familiar with the USS Laferty's story, and the heros who graced her decks. I will definately say a prayer for the sake of those who served on her.
