My father served on this ship in Korea and has Hundreds of pistures of her I can scan them for you but was wondering what you would be interested in first, and what formats you can take the graphics in. I am also interested in learning about her final fate (I.E. when she was made into Razor Blades) Last time my father had heard she was in mothballs in San Fransisco but that was in the 70's.

Thanks

Barry J. Gibbs

P.S. My Fathers name is Glen Gibbs and he served aboard her for 4 years.
