USS Pueblo crew has last laugh on North Korea

Rose Bucher, widow of Navy Cmdr. Lloyd Bucher, talks Saturday about her late husband and other members of the crew of the USS Pueblo, some of whom she met in Pueblo over the last four days for a reunion. Bucher, the commander of the ship when it was captured by North Koreans in 1968, died two years ago.

Don Peppard may not have meant to, but he summed up the spirit of the USS Pueblo crew pretty accurately with a joke from the microphone at their reunion banquet Saturday night.

"I've got good news and bad news," the former cryptographic technician told his shipmates and their families at the Pueblo Convention Center. "The bad news is that we were captives 38 years ago. . . The good news is our captors are still there (in North Korea)."

Read the rest.
