Comments: I didn't serve on the Gurke (wasn't born yet). I am in the Navy however. I'm writing to let the shipmates of Rudy Kluck, know that he passed away a couple of weeks ago. He died of a heart attack in his sleep. He was my wife's stepfather and served aboard the Gurke during the Korean war. I don't know what years.
Respectfully,
STG1(SW) Bill Garner
