SWCC - Navy's Best Kept Secret

Van T. Barfoot died

We got this e-mail forwared to us... remembering one badass American by the name of Van T. Barfoot. It's been edited for grammar, and we added the full text of his citation for the Medal of Honor.

When the Royal Australian Navy faced off against a Russian convoy that included the Slava-class missile cruiser Varyag, two frigates were on the front lines. But what exactly were these frigates?

To get the answer, one has to go back to the 1980s and 1990s. The Australians were looking to replace the aging River-class frigates they had in service.
