Last Known Activity

"In early October, William C. Lawe received word of an upcoming Southeast Asian deployment. After a month of preparation, the ship set sail for Pacific waters. On 10 December, William C. Lawe experienced her first combat action in 27 years of service during a daring night raid on North Vietnamese coastal defense sites in which she received hostile return fire. The remainder of 1972 was spent as a gunfire support unit off the coast of South Vietnam. William C. Lawe rang in 1973 with continued gun-line duty off Vietnam."



Though the memories of my brother will never grow dim. No matter how many years have passed by. I will always wonder what happened to him. I just have to say I love all the men and women who served this country for me, especially the brother I lost in the sea. 
From his sister,
