Remembering USS Stark FFG-31

May 17, 1987 - A very fitting tribute can be found at Mark Wasnock's blog which consists of only three posts, but they are all about USS Stark. He lost friends and shipmates that day. It's worth popping over.

There is also a snippet from a Public Radio interview Tim Gable who was aboard Stark at the time of the attack and spent 11 hours in the water after the attack. Another link is here.

If you click on the link for the interview Tim Gable, don't miss the part from minutes 13 to 16 when Gable describes his rescue from the water. It is incredibly moving to listen to him describe the experience of the Bahrainian helicopter plucking him from the Gulf.
