Comments: My Grandfather was a crewman on board the USS Laffey,
but unfortunately I do not remember what the number of
the ship was. His name was Thomas Barto, and he was a
veteran of the korean war. I do remember being told that
he was on the ship for the longest ship to shore battle of
the war. It would mean a lot to me to find out which ship
he was on and if anyone remembers serving with him.
Thanks a lot.
