Re: The answer is ...
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world according to The Kinks.
Which incident is still available -- on Wikipedia, ironically. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Higbee#Vietnam_War
Yeah...Tracy White is "no one"...
Tracy White gave the DANFS answer below.
"For the record," I learned (not too long ago, actually) that the DANFS entry for USS Higbee had been "modified" (fairly recently) to delete an incident that happened in Vietnam from her entry. There is photographic proof the incident happened, but the Navy has chosen to "expunge" it for unknown reasons.
So, I no longer entirely trust the DANFS myself anymore. I certainly place it above the likes of Wikipedia, and most other online references, but--to my dismay--I now find that even it, too, is "subject to whimsy," and can not be completely invariably relied upon
