Wish I had seen that. A few months ago, I heard about a documentary that was going to be on HBO about the Pueblo incident. Haven't heard anything else about it. Anyone else hear the same thing? I have alway wanted to meet Cdr. Bucher. Now, that is no longer possible. May he rest in peace. A ship's Captian who had no choice to do what he was forced to do under the given circumstances. He once served aboard a submarine, and during the siezure of the USS Pueblo he is quoted as saying "I wish I could dive this boat". He can now join those crew members who have passed away since the capture and return. I'll bet this is front page news in North Korea. They're probably having a party over this news, the bastards. Sorry for my language. No other way to say it.
I wrote a letter to him about twenty years ago and he wrote me back and sent an autographed picture. Those are two items I will always cherish. RIP CDR. Bucher, USS Pueblo AGER-2.
