Comments: I never served aboard the USS Gurke, but find it utterly amazing that I have never heard of it before. My maiden name is Gurke, and I know there are very few of us in the United States. I am now embarked on a search to learn as much as I can about the ship. Any assistance you can provide will be much appreciated.
