My thanks to: The Destroyer Escort Sailors Association who awarded this banner. To Charles R. "Dick" Casper, who nominated our site for the award. And many thanks also to the Whitehurst veterans of WWII, Korean War, Post Korean Era, and the Viet Nam War Era, who have contributed the ideas, articles and photos which tell just some of the history and lore of this gallant ship.

A note to all
readers of this website. Our
Military veterans are dying at the
Plea from your Yeoman
Every year when
we send out invitations to the reunion, several are returned
because the man has moved. If we are lucky there is a
forwarding address sticker on the envelope. Too often there
is not one. So please update your Yeoman when you move,
change e-addresses, and your phone numbers. You never know
when an old friend may want to get in touch with you.
P.S. I do
not share your data with anyone except shipmates and their
families. I prefer to put YOU in touch with the requestor
rather than give out your contact numbers.
