Lanny H Buroff


A Note from The Virtual Wall

From the US Naval Forces Vietnam Command History for July 1970:
"The USS KRISHNA (ARL 38) was struck by a water mine while anchored in the vicinity of Sea Float complex (VQ 982 668) on the night of 6 July. The explosion ripped a 20 foot by 17 foot hole in the area of the port side engine room and accomodation ladder. Fourteen feet of the opening was below the waterline. QM2 Lanny Howard Buroff on PCF 40 which was nested next to the KRISHNA was killed instantly by fragments from the explosion."
