I've not read the article but from past reading I've always thought that Buckmaster gave the order to abandon ship too soon. That may not have made a difference ultimately however.


“Together, let us take up the challenge to reawaken America's religious and moral heart, recognizing that a deep and abiding faith in God is the rock upon which this great Nation was founded.” - Ronald Reagan, May 4, 1982
