The Final Chapter

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"
in response to reader comment: USS Stark

Submitted by Tom Mays (United States), Jan 3, 2007 at 13:18

I was on board the USS Dubuque when the Stark was hit. We did a tour of the Persian Gulf towards the end when the Vincennes shot down the airliner. We had got into bed with one enemy to defeat a greater enemy and all politics aside it was the right thing to do.

However the Stark incident went away all too quietly. When the first Gulf War started I always said to myself "Remember the Stark". I am finally glad to see the perpetrator of this heinous attack finally got his at the end of a rope.

I hope all my shipmates that died that day and every other day in all the wars in that region can rest a little easier now.
