USS Pueblo Crew Single Digit Pose

Recommended Posts

In 1968, USS Pueblo was captured by North Korea. Forced to pose for propaganda photos, the crew displayed their middle fingers which they told their captors was a "Hawaiian good luck sign."

Time magazine revealed the gesture's true meaning, resulting in the crew being beaten. USS Pueblo is still held by North Korea and is the oldest commissioned ship in the U.S. Navy after USS Constitution.
