Comments: My husband, Robert C. McCann, served aboard the USS Gurke during the Korean conflict. He was diagnosed with Bone Cancer on March 24, 2005 and died the next month on April 28th. He spoke a lot about the fellas he was onboard with and was very fortunate to have had the quality of men that served with him. I was blessed and honored to have been his wife and friend for the years we had together. Thank all of you for serving our country as you have done and God bless you and America.

Comments: I remember the first day aboard ...It was a day that changed my life...I became a man at a ripe age of 18. I went through a FRAM in Seattle and moved to a new home port in San Diego. Being a fireman was like being at the bottom of the food chain but little did I know it would turn out to be the best possible thing that ever happend. We were a family all in our own. We shared everything. MM and BT shared a living space like no other. Always a good time. I remember the day I got a message from the Navy Dept while I was home on leave To report back to the ship ASAP. We had just enterd the War with VEIT NAM. The day I will never forget....
