I was on the USS Brush in 1966. During that time, a typhoon or hurricane hit and it caused me to have stress related problems. I does not know the name of the hurricane/typhoon or what month. I guess that it occurred July -August 1966. Does anyone remember this occurrence and could describe the events to help me in my claim ?
