Really nice Bearmon,

 

That's also a DESRON patch, WATTS was the flagship of Reserve Destroyer Squadron 27 (ResDesRon 27), established on January 13, 1958 which dates this one in the late 1950's

Good to know Info Thanks

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

 

She would have been a DDR radar picket when your dad served on her Steve, I don't have the patch but here's the plaque
