From the president of the USS Laffey (DD-724) Association sad news. Brigid also has an excellent post about this.
We have lost another of our WWII heroes.
On November 14, 2010 another plankowner has passed.
George Rusk WT3, Plankowner and survivor of Okinawa has moved on to join his shipmates. George was 90 years old.
Please remember him in your prayers and thoughts.
George will be honored at our memorial service at the reunion in Savannah.
Fair seas and following winds Sailor. Your service will not be forgotten!
