    The USS Oldendorf is cited as to have performed in ASW operations off the coast of Australia at that time. Typhoon IDA hit landfall on the 11th to main land China - and was not 200 miles away from anywhere on the 10th that it could have made that leap feasible. The view point of a 25 foot boat at ten miles from BiG Eyes - questionable at best. Parzyk is not listed on NavyBuddies or CrewServ as a member to the ship during that time - And the Oldendorf - 'Shellbacked' on August 9 - meaning it crossed the equator. meaning it could not have been in Perth (as reported and photo'd) and Subic Bay per the article - without crossing the equator beforehand - what you have here is a wonderful piece of feel good fiction - my guess, right in time and line with hopped up, hyped up tensions in the South China Sea and the US Navy activity against China in the Spratley Island Region........PS - the Navy gives out Ribbons and Awards like candy - the official version of action on 7/10 - no way follows the 'RD' "True Stories" account. ie - where is the helicopter ? For $238 you can purchase the official navy archives of that cruise - again - I doubt it lines up with the Readers Digest article either. Facts over Feels - EveryTime.
