devoted to the story of Typhoon Cobra has generated a lot of
e-mail from family and friends of crew who served aboard the
destroyers USS HULL, USS MONAGHAN and USS SPENCE. This
collection is an example and PDN is honored to share them.
John "Jack" Bowen was not on board the Monaghan
when she was lost to the sea.
These men of the Greatest
Generation are important to remember and honor. Today Ensign
Bowen's nephew, Mark Zuercher , wrote of his Uncle Jack:
went home to the Lord today, May 1st.  He was a
great patriot, serving his country for 40+ years. He
served God, his family and his neighbors until the end
of his 92 years. He was a humble giver all of his life.
What a man he was, a great and wonderful man. I loved
him so much."
Mark is a patriot too for
sharing the these memories with those who visit her. God
bless you sir and your loved ones.
Our search for others like Jack and Evan
continues. As we find them, their legacy will be preserved
