The Lucky Few Book by Jan Herman

Postby President » 27 Feb 2014 13:54

Shipmates, I have just finished reading The Lucky Few and I would like to give a brave salute to Mr. Jan Herman for documenting the events of April - May 1975 while onboard Kirk. I sincerely believe that he did not miss a beat between the Prologue with the events leading up to Operation Frequent Wind, the chapter on Capt. Jacobs and the fantastic portrayal of the refugees beginning with where they came from in South Vietnam, where they wound up and how successful thy have become in adjusting to a new life in the United States. Last of all a standing ovation to Steve Burwinkle who did the impossible whiler trying to keep everything under control.
