Norfolk Reunion 1966
Comments by Ari Phoutrides 

Attached are three photos taken at the 1966 Norfolk Reunion...
The reunion in which our skipper pulled a few strings and had the Laffey come
into the Navy Yard so we might have the opportunity to inspect her. 
These photos were submitted by Barbara Johnson.

Members of the reunion inspecting the ship. 
Please note the formal attire we were wearing.  
And please note the sailor in his dress blues. 
To the man, everyone of us thought.....
How could such a youngster run a ship such as this! 
I guess we were quick to forget.
