    This photo is showing irony for my family. My dad , Thomas A Walker, BM2, served on the USS Aulick (DD-569) during WWII from Oct 1942 through Oct 1945 and berth next to is the ship I, Thomas L. Walker, YN2, served on the USS Corry (DD-817) during the Viet Nam Era from Sept 1969 to Sept 1971. This is really weird and brought laughter to my parents and I. Too bad they reached their demise as scrape but all thinks have to come to an end. All the ships in this photo and others that met the same fate served their country valiantly and the men who served on them.
