When my wife worked at a pharmacy in Pt. Hadlock a man came up with a Johnston ball cap off. She said, 'You were at Samar". He said yes how did she know. She had read Last Stand Of The Tin Can Sailors and told him so. Then she invided him to talk at our model club. He lived in Port Ludlow and the man who pulled him out of the water lived there too.
An expedition by undersea technology company Caladan Oceanic found the wreck of the Fletcher-class destroyer USS Johnston this week below 21,180 feet or 4 miles of water east of Samar Island in the Philippine Sea, the company said in a news release. According to Caladan Oceanic, the underwater operation was the deepest shipwreck dive ever carried out.
