Here’s a Vietnam story Hollywood would never make

Fortunately, the US Navy did. Yes, it’s an hour long.

Make the hour. Thank us later.


We should probably rathole this thing for April 30th next year, but we just watched it and have to share the story with you.

Sometimes, you go off to war and wind up someplace else entirely. Such was the case for the crew of USS Kirk, a Destroyer Escort/Frigate that led the greatest naval rescue, in terms of live saved, of all time.

Kirk sails on under a new name and pennant number in the Navy of the Republic of China on Taiwan.
