"Regretfully, I was never a sailor. My service was in the U.S.Army Field Artillery. However, my childhood friend named Danny Lipscomb served on the HULL in or around 1980-1981. I remember the wonderful photos and stories he would bring home following a Wes-Pac tour. For that, I always envied him. Sadly, I recently found out that my old friend was killed in an automobile accident in Arkansas in October 2004. Some of you may remember him."
