Fascinated to discover the U.S.S Knapp, my Dad was a captain who served with the 22nd Dragoons 79th Armoured landing "H"
Hour of D-day. His forebears settled in Wales from Boston, Mass.
I am a registered nurse in Canada - small world Eh!

I would really like to know more about your Grandfather where he originated and how he came to be honoured with the warships'name and vice versa. Thanks in anticipation -Dan.

This ship was named after my great-great grandfather. I am so honored to have my name on a US Navy ship. Thank you for all that have served on it or relatives of people who have served in this ship.

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.
Thank you,
Mrs. Irwin's 5th grade class

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.

I was lucky enough to share the Knapp's amazing WWII history this week with my daughter's 5th grade class. I shared the medals the Knapp earned, I read the Knapp Sack and I told stories of Tony the 15 years old who worked in the mess. At 11 years old many of the kids had brothers that were in high school. Explaining to them how you went half way around the world was enlightening. Thank you for all you did! The only thing missing was my grandfather, Lowell Hammond. He told the story 3 years ago at my oldest daughters school. Keep the Knapp alive!

Dear Mr. Smith:
The students certainly enjoyed your wonderful presentation about the U.S.S. Knapp. They were thrilled to have you come in and show them the fascinating pictures and model of the destroyer. Thank you for making history come alive for them. They said they wish you could come and teach Social Studies everyday! I told them I would try to make that happen!
Thanks again,
Mrs. Irwin 5th grade teacher, Washington Gifted School
