DD 561 (Fletcher class)
We are seeking information on the USS Prichett and her crews. Files and photos may be E-mailed to us and we will incorporate them into these pages.
My father passed away on November 21, 2005. At that time, he was working on an article about his remembrances of his tour during WWII. I havenít been able to find a place to where I can send it, and it was one of his last requests that I try and find the newsletter/webpage or something that could take the story and add it to some type of history of WWII. Do you happen to know where I can send this? Iíll add the following information from the first page so that it might help you.
Name: James I DePorter
Hopefully, you can help me with this. I would really like to get this to someone who would want it (besides myself of course).
Subject: USS Prichett
I served on the Prichett from July 1967, Our (mine) first westpac was as, you have in the records. We left and November-December 1967. We returned in June 1968. However we returned to Westpac in Late May 1969, mostly all shore bombardment. We returned to San Diego in November of 1969, and I was discarged in less than a week..Every write up I see does not mention the 1969 cruise.
