Departure and Arrival records of USS Whitehurst DE 634,

from Green Cove Springs, Florida to Pusan, Korea


Kept by Al Crawford, QM1 at the time, now QMCM USN Ret

All Whitehurst log entries made at Green Cove Springs begin "Moored portside to the dock in berth B, pier 5, U.S. Naval Station, Green Cove Springs, Florida,...". This photo was clipped from a larger photo which showed all the piers.  The pier marked as 5 is the 5th pier from the left.  The photo caption said "Piers 3 to 5 were for DEs".  You can see that the ships at piers 1 & 2 are not DEs.  If the small "Barracks" vessel at the head of  pier 5 is in berth A, then the first group of DEs would be in Berth B and the ship with its port side to the pier would be USS Whitehurst DE-634.  If any reader can verify this or tell me why it is wrong, please
