As an addition to the above comments by sweetwater4 about the Vammen. I remember a plaque on the mess deck, located on a bulkhead next to the door going to the Chief's quarters, from the movie company thanking the crew for their assistance in filming the movie on board ship. Quite a few crew members appeared in the movie as extra's. I was a crew member on this ship from late 1960 to July 1963. Also when you see the movie it is quite clear that the ship has only one funnel. The Stembel had two funnels along with housed 5" guns where the DE's of this class had open mounts with 3" guns. The two silhouettes are quite different from on another. The Vammen was the only Buckley Class DE to have had the Bridge structure lowered.
