My father Edward M White Jr. was aboard the USS Knapp out of the yards as it was commissioned. My Dad died in November 1989 in a accident in Rolla, MO. I would like to share some of my dads diary that he wrote in the 1943-1944. I also have pictures when the Knapp went over the equarter if anyone would like these please contact me at my email address above.

God Bless all who served our Country on the USS Knapp.

Regards,

Ed White III

My dad, Quartermaster Chief Paul Ebbs, served on KNAPP from her commissioning to the end of WWII. He is still with us at 88 years young and will talk about his experiences if asked. I just had a discussion with him this morning about Typoon Cobra which savaged TF 38 in December of 44. He spent 2 1/2 days with me on USS Key West (SSN722) back in '87 during a tiger cruise. Great website.

My Dad Ernest E Beck Jr served on the USS Knapp in 1944 and 1945. He is finally willing to talk to me about his experiences during WW II - I am seeking my MA in Military History - emphasis WWII and am looking forward to my interview with him. He is still living in NJ and has all of his life. He told me he was a Seaman First Class and also ran the Skipper's gig. Does anyone here remember him?

Thanks to all of you for serving!

Roland J. St. Hilaire, who served on the USS Knapp from 1943-1945 is sitting here with me (his daughter, Carol) looking at your site. He was a coxwain on the ship and my son (his grandson) is interviewing him on his experiences during the war. He is enjoying looking at your site. He is almost 88 years old, and is recovering from a stroke, hoping to return to his assisted living facility in Ayer, MA. Thank you for this site! Anyone who knew Roland and wants to contact him can do so through my email above (caz0624@charter.net). Thank you.

As a collector of M1 rifles, I just purchased a stock with a "Pilferable Inventory Tag" attached from August 1952 for Rifle M1. According to the Tag, the M1 rifle came off the USS Knapp DD-653. The M1's serial number was 3526103, which is a late WWII M1. I don't have the rifle, just the stock and tag. The sailors from the Knapp look to have taken good care of this one - thanks!
