Title: USS Johnston wreckage...confirmed
Post by: steve58 on April 01, 2021, 02:49:55 PM
The wreckage of the USS Johnston was originally found in 2019 (https://news.abs-cbn.com/spotlight/11/06/19/us-navy-destroyer-sunk-in-world-war-ii-is-found-20000-feet-under-the-sea), but its identity was just confirmed with photos of her hull number "557".  May her gallant crew RIP.
