Former Fletcher

hi
This picture taken in the Kiel canal around 1973 shows the former USS
Ringgold DD500 , She was transferred to West Germany in 1959 as Z2 (D171)
later she went to the Greek Navy, and scrapped in 93 . This Destroyer earned 10 battle stars under the USN. i found a good write up on the www.just by punching in USS Ringold
Regards Ronnie R
