USS Knapp Logbook
Name: James Patterson
From: Indiana, PA
I served aboard in 53 54 as a SH3. The Knapp was the best ship I ever served aboard and had the best Skipper I ever served under. I only left her because I wanted to stay in the Pacific but 6 months later I was transferred to North Africa and then back into the Atlantic Fleet. I now reside in the Armed Forces Retirement Home Gulfport, MS. Should you get in the area stop by and see the home. It s a beautiful place.

To the crew of the U.S.S. Knapp:
Mrs. Irwin's 5th grade class saw pictures of the neat location where you were having your reunion. We would like to take a field trip to the reunion and join all of you! Mrs. Irwin said she didn't think they had permission slips that would cover that kind of trip. We hope you all have a great time. You deserve it. We are so proud of all of you. Thank you for serving our country. We look forward to another presentation next year by Mr. Smith on Veterans Day.

My grandfather, Larry Mercier, served on the USS Knapp during WWII. He told us a few stories growing up and now I wish I asked him to tell me more. He passed away about 20 years ago and wish he could share stories with my son. I took my son to visit the USS Yorktown in Charleston SC last weekend and he loved it! I'd love to hear from anyone that may have known my grandfather. God Bless the USS Knapp and it's men for keeping my grandfather safe during the war and allowing me to share his stories with my son.
