I actually remember operating with some of those in the early '70s. My dad was on the Perkins '60-'61

Hello Sir,

My name is Dave and I am a former infantryman and Iraq War Veteran in need. Recently one of our WWII brothers, a very close family friend of mine, passed on from this life. I have been given the honor and privilege by his family to research his military history as he was tight lipped about it, even to them. My mission complete, I am building a shadow box to honor his commitment and sacrifice that will be presented to his daughter in a private moment after the funeral. My question to you sir, my request if you are willing and able, is will you sell me the USS Chevalier DD 805 Patch and if you have it, a USS Huse DE 145 Patch. These items will be featured in the box along side his medals. Thank you for your consideration. Have a great day.

USS FRANK KNOX (DDR-442) Gearing class in service 1944 to 1971, known in our Salvage world as "the Knox on the Rocks" having ground herself high and dry on Pratas Reef in 1965.

Several of my shipmates were on the salvage op which eventually freed her. Japanese made, she was designated DDR from 1949 to 1969
