The USS Hughes is Sunk


On October 16th, 1948, the Hughes was towed out to sea off of Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands and on October 20th she was sent to her final resting place at the bottom of the ocean.  This is the last photo ever taken of the Hughes, and shows smoke and flames coming from the ship minutes before it sinks.
