When I Went To Sea On The USS-Merrill (DD-976) , It Was 1  Of The Spruence-Class  Destroyer Ships. So Now I Better Know Just Who Admiral-Spruence Was! Even Though He Was A “Black-Shoe” Sailor , Of The Surface Type , As Opposed To The “Brown-Shoe” Aviation Types. He Paved The Way For Folks Like Me , Not Only Did He Have To Deal With The World In The Early Days , The Attack On Pearl-Harbor , Was His Just Another View Of Just How Some Folks Hate The U.S.A  . He Planned Some Of The D-Day Landings , So Our Foes Got A Taste Of Our Mite!
