USS Leahy Tipping Point........


I don't know if anyone has mentioned how the Leahy came close to her end in 1966......

It always seemed for the evening meal the ship would be put on a chow course. It always seemed to do a lot more rolling during the evening meal. And it was believed there was a competion between the officers to see who could get the biggest roll out of her. Anyway one night she took a 40 some degree roll to starboard and then hung there and shuddered for it seems like an eternity until she finally righted herself.
