DD-407 Plaque Presented!

as he promised, DD-407 Shipmate Jim Botkin proudly presented the 1939 Ship Commissioning Plaque to shipmates and guests in attendance. Jim worked diligently investigating the plaque and was able to authenticate it as the real McCoy. The Plaque came into Jim’s possession earlier this year after disappearing from display on the forward bulkhead of DLG-31’s crew mess deck in 1974.
