USS Tingey DD-539 coming alongside USS Midway for refueling off the California coast 31
May 1958. Note first line across and crew forward ready to haul in the refueling hose.
Tingey was decommissioned 30 Nov 63 and stricken 01 Nov 65 but she was not through
serving her country. On 04 Feb 66 the
USS Brinkley Bass DD-887 and the USS Waddell
DDG-24 collided in the Gulf of Tonkin. The bow of the Tingey was used to repair the
Brinkley Bass. The Tingey was then buried at sea, being sunk as a target in May 1966.
