  • Korean War Tin Can Sailor

    Hello to All. Served on the USS McKean DD 784 1950-53 during the
    Korean War. We participated in the Inchon Invasion September, 1950.
    We were part of the ASW screen for Task Force 77 1950-51.
    Would like to hear from Navy members that served during those years.
    Anyone that was in US Navy Headquarters in the Dai-Ichi building?
    The Dai-Ichi building was also General Douglas MacArthur's headquarters.

              Thank you!

              The story of "The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" is one of the most inspirational WW2 stories I have read...

              I hope that spirit persists through today's destroyer forces...
