D-Day on the USS Duane – 67 Years Ago

Today is the 67th anniversary of D-Day, when the Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy during “Operation Neptune”. During this time, my grandfather was stationed aboard the USS Duane in Naples, Italy while planning was going on for “Operation Anvil-Dragoon”. Here is a repost of a photograph of the Duane taken approximately 67 years ago while at port in Naples, Italy.
