Re: USS Naugatuck
Me too. I was raised in Beaumont, Texas. My father served on a destroyer built in Orange, Texas and met my mother at the local USO during WWII. My favorites are WWII frigates, CSA warships and most of all, the tall ships---especially clipper ships. My namesake g-grandfather was a master mariner on a clipper ship that sailed from Liverpool to New Zealand. We should all meet in Pensacola or Mobile someday. In the summertime.
