Higbee Docks For Repairs
The spokesman said the Higbee docked at Subic, 90 miles northwest of Manila, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
There was no immediate word on how long the repairs would take and how soon the ship would be back on station at the Tonkin Gulf.
The Higbee suffered considerable damage on topside and four of its crewmen were injured by attacking MIGs off Vietnam last April 19.
