Aloha Steve,
I was a "Target" sailor and we used to love trying to track you guys. Thanks for letting us catch you a few times. The photo on the right looks like an Epperson class DD but could be an Escort. I went through one Typhoon on a ship very much like that. The other two hurricanes I was in was on a Cruiser which was a little larger.
Welcome aboard! Whatever stories we tell we have to start with "Listen up. This ain't no sh--!"
