Love them! My dad was on the Perkins. A guy I worked with was on the Furse and has an ash tray on his desk. Worked with the Owens. Love this!

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 from the reef.  She was designated DDR from 1949 to 1969 - Japanese made patch.

USS ROGERS (DDR-876) Gearing class in service 1945 to 1981. Being a radarman, I've always liked this patch

She was designated a Radar Picket DDR from 1949 to 1963

DD 876 USS ROGERS 001.jpg

 

This is one of her Vietnam patches when she was reverted back to DD-876 in 1963, later serving on the gunline, callsign 'Bullseye'

Her nickname was "The Tonkin Tiger" Anyone have the Tonkin Tiger patch to post here?

She later had a 20 year career in the ROKN and is now a museum ship in South Korea
