USS Robert K. Huntington DD 781
The E-mail


My Dad served aboard the RKH in 1946, during the A-bomb testing, Operation Crossroads. He would like to contact other crew members from that tour.

His name is David J. Cagley. His e-mail address is I believe he was a radioman during his tour on the RKH.

Thanks for any help you can give us.

While I was aboard the USS Robert K. Huntington DD781, Sept. 1966 to Aug. 1968 someone wrote and recorded a song about the ship. I don't know the name of the song but the lyrics started with "The bouncing Bobby K, DD781....". I remember them playing the song on the loud speakers once while we were alongside a tender during refueling at sea. Maybe someone else remembers it and it could be included in the web site.
