      Hi Mithra - My Uncle David (who is in my stream) served on three different Destroyers in WWII. They were called "tin cans" by the sailors. He fought the U-Boats in the North Sea and the "kamikazes" in the South Pacific off Okinawa (for which he was awarded a special medal for bravery). He died in 1953, when I was 15 years old. He was a great man. (Two of the three boats he was on were torpedoed).

      So this photo has special meaning for me. / Joe
