USS Scorpion Lost
Your Business Blogger has an article up at National Review Online. About the loss of the sub USS Scorpion.
I went to school with a girl whose dad is on eternal patrol.
Yolanda Mazzuchi was about the prettiest girl in our school class. Our dads were in the Navy, often gone for months at a time. And they would be welcomed home at dockside with cheers and homemade signs. These gatherings at the D&S Piers at the Naval Base in Norfolk, Virginia, were a regular part of our lives growing up….
At 1 in the afternoon on Monday, May 27, 1968, at the height of the Cold War the USS Scorpion was due in port.
Yolanda didn’t know it then, but her dad was already dead….
The loss still hurts four decades later. Read the rest.
