Photo 015 I was going through my late husbands things and came across a few photo's of him and some buddies. Although I do not know the names of the buddies, my husbands name was Theodore J. Manale, Jr. Based on the USS Wren Battle Ship Destroyer, I believe as a gunner, rin 1959. I have attached a photo of the guys and a news article about the Wren when it landed in Texas. I am sending you the phot but with hotmail, the article is too large to send. I hope this information will help with your site. I am very proud to be a Military wife and may they all remain safe and in GOD's hands Irma Manale
