James Edward “Bud” Simbeck: Ret. US Navy

dedic(James, 'Bud', was the grandson of John & Kizzie Littrell.)

  In January and February of 1951 the SS Hank (Bud’s ship) supported the 8th Army (two cousins, JD and Ruben Littrell were serving in the 8th Army in Korea) as it moved to recapture and consolidate Seoul and Inchon. Screening, blockade patrol, and shore bombardment constituted the destroyer's duties along the Korean coast until she sailed for the United States, reaching Norfolk on 9 June via San Diego, the Panama Canal, and Guantanamo.



Bud was honorably discharged from active duty in December 15, 1967 and officially retired
