Subject: USS McCord (DD 534)
I am hoping to receive some information on my husband's grandfather, Frank K. Becker, who was stationed aboard the McCord in the '43-'45 time frame. I know he was an officer, but that is all. My husband is a submariner and as he finds some of his grandfather's things is finding they have quite a few things in common. If ANYBODY knows ANYTHING, please contact me. I'm trying to make this a part of my husband's scrapbook.

I am looking for information on the USS McCord. Mr. Wendell Peterson was stationed on the USS McCord during World War II. A Pharmacist's Mate performed an appendectomy on him and he is looking for the man who saved his life. Can you help?
My cousin was MIA / KIA on the USS Longshaw. I have been able to find much information because of Destroyers Online. THANK YOU! This means a lot to me and my family.
Thanks for your help!

My name is Craig Turney. My Dad, Grover Clayton Turney, was stationed on USS McCord DD534 from the time she was commissioned, until the war was over. I have in my possession a transcript of the diary he kept while onboard, as well as some other information about the ship and her travels. I would like to get this to Brad so that it can be posted on the McCord page. I am willing to share all of the information that I have, because I am proud of my dad, and the world needs to know about our WWll heroes.
Thanks for your help.
