DD(Dad’s Diary)75

This is a tribute of sorts , as both ships I served on are no more! The USS Merrill (DD 976) was decommissioned several years ago , and was used as target practice for other naval ships in the pacific area , before being sunk as an artificial reef off Hawaii! And the USS Lockwood(FF 1064) was decommissioned several years ago too , and was scrapped ¬†for the metal, so the legacy will live on , 1 ship gave other ships metal to use in building other USS’s , and the other 1will live on in helping other USS’s have a more accurate shot!

This is an abbreviated DD , spring baseball kind of gets top billing?
