The government and the Navy can be proud of their actions in this one.

My brother lives in Poway and is an avid collector of WWII uniforms and other paraphenalia. A few years back he bought some things from Mr. Bucher. He just thought he was buying from another collector until he met him. He talked with him for hours and was able to purchase some items.

Bucher was given a suicide mission monitoring an increasingly hostile North Korea and was hung out to dry in crunch time.

Ollie North's War Stories had the story of the Peublo capture on this past Sunday. Sorry to see Cmdr. Bucher has passed away. He and his crew went through hell. North Korea deserves payback. Someday, hoping it comes.

The ship remained behind in North Korea, where it became a tourist attraction.

I say it's never too late to send a force to go get it back.

Lloyd Bucher was left holding the bag for an administration's cowardice, another disaster on Lyndon Johnson's watch. The seizure of an American warship -- under ANY circumstances -- should be considered an act of war, and the response should be swift and certain: give us our people back or you will die.

Rest in peace, Commander.

Oh man. He spoke at our Navy World Wide Public Affairs Conference in New Orleans last year. It was great listening to his sea stories. He was a real character.

I'm ashamed to admit that I'd forgotten all about this event.

The more I think about events such as this one, the Mayaguez, Desert One, and Somalia, the more I'm thankful for the man who sits in the White House today.

God bless George Bush. Finally a man with balls leading us.

FOX's War Stories recently did a story on the USS Pueblo. It was facinating! I am so glad that was done before Commander Bucher died. Too bad we couldn't have gotten the ship back from NK before he died.

God bless the family!

I met commander Bucher here in S.D. some yrs back and told him I admired him for his service.

Years later, Bucher remained angry that no U.S. forces were sent to aid the Pueblo.

"The U.S. at that time had enormous military forces in the western Pacific within five minutes flying time of us," Bucher told The Associated Press in 1988. "I would have thought something could be mustered to come to our aid. But everybody just forgot we were there."

That would be under the brilliant military/foreign policy era of Johnson, and McNamara (who did such a wonderful job with Vietnam strategy and tactics).
