  • Bob's Relief in USS Goldsborough

    Posted on 12/10/15 - by Dave Gleason
    I relieved Bob as ASW and Nuclear Weapons Officer in USS Goldsborough (DDG 20). Didn't get to know him really well, but his division always spoke highly of him and respected him. His tour of duty was marked by an accidental firing of a torpedo at the snack bar on the BRAVO pier at Pearl Harbor...no one was hurt. I'm sure Bob had nothing to do with it [oddly, during my tour, we accidently fired a "live" one in the Gulf of Tonkin -- that was a mechanical failure]. Bob would not have liked to serve under the next Goldsborough skipper for sure! Rest in eternal peace, Bob. I'll be seeing ya, shipmate!

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
