Comments: It was great finding the web site. Sorry so few of the sailors I sailed with haven't found it yet. I first walked across the Quarter Deck as the ship got underway for hurricane evasion. Had a great time on the Azores tour and the port change to Pearl. Threw off the last line as the ship got underway for sea trials after dry dock in Pearl. My best to all of you and I hope more shipmates find us.

Comments: Reason I was assigned to the Claud Jones was because my brother Richard was stationed on her for just about all of the 4 years he was in. When in-transit in Philly they asked if I had any relatives in the Navy and I told them yes- Richard. When asked if I wanted to be with him I had to think about it. Hawaii!! Are you kidding me it took me about 2 seconds and I said of course I would. We had a Great time while we were together and many fond memories. I will never forget the expression on his face the day I arrived- it was party time after that. Well on Sept 20 2013 I lost my brother Dick due to Cancer and I truly miss him. I have been putting off signing up on this web site only because I haven't taken the time. I know Dick will be happy now that I have signed up as he was so proud to have served in the Navy and served on the USS Claud Jones.

Comments: I just found this site and was surprised to see some of the photos and names I remember. I'm sure there are many who are glad this site is here. It's been a long time and the Naval Station Annex in Key West along with the Main side are now just a memory. Interesting how time changes things yet in your minds eye they are still the same. As for me I'm married 40 years now to a great girl, three grown kids, a daughter and two sons, one son married another getting there July 4th 09. Daughter is still looking. I'm also a member of U S Coast Guard Auxiliary and hold the Office of Public Affairs Officer for Division 3 here in Western New York. Until two years ago I was the District PAO for the Coast Guard Auxiliary 9th Eastern Region,and had 10 Flotillas under me across three states. As for many of you with whom I served, I have often wonder how life has been for you. I saw the Picture of Doc, and remember him well. Well, for now I'll leave the door open, stop by and say hi if you have a few minutes.

Comments: Notice the rating change over the years! I remember the many trips to Midway Island while we were chasing Russian missile debris. Spent a wonderful New Years Eve with the Gooney Birds. We spent a lot of time in the Indian Ocean, based out of Mauritias, also chasing missile debris. We used all of our monoply money in the bars in Madagascar. Madagascar was also the place where we had a lot of missing white hats???, and I believe we had one guy completely swap uniforms with a guy From the British Navy. Also, can't forget crossing the equator and ceremony that took place on the trip. Also visited Kenya, Malaysia, Perth Australia, where a Japanese trawler ran into us, Melbourne and American Samoa, where we contibuted to a blood shortage on the Island.

Comments: I met shipmates that became good friends during my short time on a great ship: USS Claud Jones DE-1033. I was transferred to the USS Claud Jones DE-1033 from the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt CVA-42 [1960 to 1963]. I been to five yearly reunions with old shipmates from the FDR. I believe that if shipmates from the USS Claud Jones' DESTROYER CLASS DEs would agree to have ship reunions as a DESTROYER SQUADRON it most likely would be successful reunions. Take care. Ed Tucker
