USS Pueblo on Display in North Korea

The Pueblo went on display in North Korea this week sporting a fresh coat of paint and the reminders of the only U.S. Navy ship still being held by a foreign government. North Korea captured the USS Pueblo in the late 1960's of the country's east coast. After a brief firefight during which one U.S. crew member was killed, the ship was seized. The crew was eventually released but North Korea kept the ship.
