I emailed before that the ship's history is incorrect.
I know the information listed comes from the U.S. Naval Historical Society, but it is incomplete; perhaps because some of the information was & still is classified.

Examples:

I requested & was awarded the AFEM which I exchanged for the VSM as allowed. I am preparing papers (PS 180, I think) requesting AFEM for deployments to Taiwan in 1959 & 1961. I assure you the Estes did not spend 1961 sailing up & down the West Coast as we did in 1960. Upon our return to the states we once again went into dry dock in Long Beach.

Anyone aboard Estes these dates should request medals due them. One would be AFEM (Vietnam), which they can exchange for VSM.
Here are the dates the Estes and their eligibility to the AFEM for Vietnam. You keep working the drill for that AFEM for Taiwan and keep me posted. If you need help let me know.
