I will pledge a sizeable donation if you will assist me in obtaining the World Cruise Book of 1954 of the USS Charles J. Badger DD657. The cruise started December 7, 1953 - did Korean duty and completed a world tour.

I would be so thrilled to obtain this book which i've tried so hard to do for several years.

Good luck in your endeavors and he best to all tin can sailors.

Vincent Bove
