I want to express my appreciation for the article “Anatomy of a Crisis,” by Mike McLaughlin, which appeared in the February/March 2004 issue. Not only was the information important in clarifying what has always been an obscure series of reported events, but as one who served on a destroyer of the same class as the Maddox during the 1950s, I know that the author did a fine job portraying both the men and ships of the time.
