"Here are 7 pages of Inchon action mentions the US destroyer action in detail, this was printed aboard the Kenya and handed out to the crew of which I still have a copy and its printed here, actually from a British perspective so should make interesting reading for the Korean Inchon Destroyer Vets.  Enjoy, Tony Berry" 

NOTE:  The USS COLLETT (as well as the other destroyers) is mentioned in these pages.
