The Missouri is on the right, a destroyer on the left. My father (Frank Kroetch) carrying my son (Daniel Pinna) when he was about 2 1/2 yrs old. My Dad was on a destroyer in WW2 (the Killen) and I love the generational/history feeling of this photo.

The Missouri was in Bremerton Washington when this was taken - where my mother grew up and where the Killen was first commissioned. My father was a plankholder, being on the Killen from commissioning to decommissioning in San Diego.
