engaged in a routine surveillance of the North Korean coast, was captured by
North Korean patrol boats. The Commanding Officer of the USS Pueblo,
Commander Lloyd M. Bucher (1929-2004), and 82 of his crew were held for 11
months. On December 23, 1968, U.S. and North Korean negotiators reached a
settlement and Bucher and his crew, but not the Pueblo, were released.
