DD 679 (Fletcher class)
We are seeking information on the USS McNair and her crews. Files and photos may be E-mailed to us and we will incorporate them into these pages.
I am Edward "AL" Nugent, TM-3, who served onboard USS Waldron (DD-699) from 1958-61. I served with Carl E. "Pete" Blankenship, BMC (ret), who served onboard McNair from 1959-'60's. He was a BM-2 during that time. I sadly report that Chief Blankenship passed away last Monday morning (02-13-06) at his home in Evington, VA.
If you are interested in obituary information, please advise and I'll forward it to you.
Edward A. "Al" Nugent
PS I am active in the USS WALDRON (DD-699) ALUMNI ASSOCIATION.
