Some of the USS Laffey's former crew members are returning to their ship not simply to pay homage, but to repair the ship.
Here's a bit about the ship anchored at Patriots Point from Wikipedia:
The ship earned the nickname "The Ship That Would Not Die" for its exploits during the D-Day invasion and the battle of Okinawa. It is a U.S. National Historic Landmark and is preserved as a museum ship in Charleston, South Carolina.
Head over to The Charleston Regional Business Journal for some details on the twice-yearly repairs.
