Hi there, I'm looking for a good gift for my dad, Peter F. Brady, who served on the USS Knapp. Dad will be turning 85 this month and wondering if anyone knows of anything that could be a memoir of his days on the Knapp or something he might enjoy having. Thanks for any help, Teri :D

I served aboard the USS Knapp from Sept. 1955 - October of 1958. I was a seaman. I went aboard the ship from NTC. The Knapp was in the San Diego bay tied to Buoy 19. My best friend aboard the Knapp was Widner. He was from Alabama. We traveled to the far East twice. Great memories.

Wow is about all I can say. Dad was pretty quiet about the serious side of WWII service. He and I were exploring the Maritime Museum in Astoria, Oregon when he found the bridge of the Knapp. It was his first ship in the Navy, where he achieved Master Chief after 22 years. Eugene "Tiny" Revier started as a Gunner's Mate then cross trained to Fire Control after 10 years. He sat in the captain's chair for a long time not saying much. Dad passed away from lung cancer in 2005 at the age of 80. I miss him and finding this website helps connect a bit to his past. Feel free to drop a line if my dad's name rings a bell with anyone you know. Steve

I am sorry to inform my father's shipmates, that Charles Dietz has passed away. He loved you guys and was so proud to be part of your crew. He no longer battles with strokes. You were an inspiration to him and he teasures the memories that you made together. Thank you from the family for being his mates and friends.

I was sorry not to have been able to make the last reunion, but hope to attend the next one. However, Pete has done a great job and hopefully some of the other great guys can step up and run the next reunion. Maybe even a group of guys from one area of the country could do the job which everyone would so appreciate. Give it some serious thought please. God Bless All.

My father-in-law, Leslie Clay Moody, served on the U.S.S. Knapp. I wanted to see if there was a website regarding the U.S.S. Knapp and to my surprise there is one! So, if there are some of his shipmates out there I would like to hear from you! Thanks.
