Comments: Hi, My name is Billy Reinstatler and I am 15 years old, so I've never served on the Gurke. My grandfather, William Weber, was a gunner's mate on the Gurke during the Korean War. I am planning on attending the U.S. Naval Academy and if not that get a commision as an Ensign through R.O.T.C. Just wanted to let you know that I enjoy looking at this site. Keep up the good work!

Comments: Enjoy news letters, etc. As one of the original plank owners, I am disappointed that my name dosn't appear in the Log. I did make contact with an old shipmate, Jim Foley, he was surprised to hear from me. We are both in poor health. Not many of us old goats left, I guess.
