Comments: My dad served on the USS Brush when it was hit in Wonsan Harbor. I have written a profile paper on him for an English class. Apparently, a gun mount was hit and the gunners mate lost his leg. I have pictures of the damage to the ship and pictures of the wounded being transported to the USS St. Paul. If anyone remembers my dad and that particular incident, please let me know. His name is Spencer M. Lunt from Honolulu, HI. He is 77 years old now and in pretty good health.

As a young lad of 5-6 years old, I also remember making a run with him from San Francisco to Long Beach (I think) and getting my first taste of sea sickness as we powered out of San Francisco and passed under the Golden Gate into rougher water.

I would appreciate hearing of any anecdotes any of his old shipmates might be willing to share.
