Fullbore Friday

They never sported anything more than 2 5"38s, struggled to make 18kts, but between them sported 37 battle stars. No question, Fullbore.

Above, the USS Kaskasia (AO-27) during WWII. Check out the Sailors on deck. That is earning your seapay.

Via at tip from Sid, some great stories about her an her unsung sisters; USS Cimarron (AO-22) and USS Neosho (AO-23). You owe it to yourself to at least visit the NEOSHO site. A great story.
