Casualty at Sea

On June 5, 1972, FN David S. Kraner was serving as a fireman aboard the USS Ashtabula (AO-51), operating in the Gulf of Tonkin when he was reported as Missing/Man Overboard. Thorough efforts to locate FN Kraner aboard the vessel revealed that he had last been seen at 0100 hours on the morning of the 5th during which the loss occurred. The closest point of land ranged 25 to 56 nautical miles. A 24-hour extensive search along the track of the ship was made supported by a helicopter from the USS Coral Sea. All efforts failed to locate any trace of Kraner. On February 18, 1976, his remains were declared nonrecoverable. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear FN David Stanley Kraner, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
