|Attention All Hands: This is not the Thorn,
repeat, not the Thorn! All hands can calm
down and relax. This is not the Thorn!
|Unfortunately these photo's below are of the Spruance
Class Destroyer U.S.S. JOHN YOUNG DD-973, a
sistership to the USS THORN DD 988, meeting it's end
from a MK 48 ADCAP naval torpedo fired from the
U.S.S. PASADENA SSN-752
Note: Ship has been stripped of armament and radar,
|Interesting Fact: To date 14 of the
30 Spruance Class Destroyers
have been expended during
SINKEX's. A list of the vessels sunk
will be posted here and hopefully
along with pictures.
