USS Thach FFG-43

I've spent most of my career proudly covering the military and veterans. I am trying to track down any crew members aboard the USS Thach missile frigate when the ship went to Iran in 1987 and protected the Gulf waters. It's a heck of a story, largely untold, and we are coming up on the 30-year anniversary. Do you have any suggestions as to how I could find a couple guys from that crew?

Many thanks, and cheers,
Jamie Reno

This is the first time i've been on your site (congratulations) I am trying to contact Robert Gibson former commander of USS Thach FFG 43. Thach visited Geraldton, Western Australia in the 1990's and some great friendships were forged. I will be remembered as Eddy McGee.

Thank you,
Eddy Brown
