Peter A. Huchthausen was a USS ORLECK sailor and author. He published an article in 2004 about USS ORLECK that David Slaughter pointed out on a Facebook post in US NAVY GEARING CLASS DESTROYERS Facebook page. If you do not belong to that closed group you should consider it. The site celebrates Gearing Class Destroyers and always has information posted about USS ORLECK. Bob Orleck is one of the pages admins.
