Dutton Life Preserver

Don holds a USNS Dutton life preserver at his daughter's pool in Maryland. He reports "it was sent to me years ago by a fellow TAGS friend and mate from Mississippi Rob Nau, who has since passed away. He was at the decommissioning of the Dutton, and thought I would enjoy since we both sailed on her. It now resides at my daughters pool keeping watch for all who may need her".
