    The 74

     
    The Navy Destroyer F E Evans DD754 was struck by HMAS Melbourne near Viet Nam on 3 June 1969. 74 Sailors were lost as the forward half of the destroyer sank.
    Their shipmates (The Survivors), families and friends have petitioned the US government for many years since that date to have the names of The 74 placed on the Viet Nam memorial Wall in Washington DC. It has not happened yet.
    Can we at LEAST give them A Salute to the Troops on CNN someday soon?
    Thanks,
    Ben Alcoser
