Rex Buss, kneeling on right 8/31/07:

My cousin Rex Buss served on the USS Glennon about 1950-1955. The other photos I sent in a separate email are of his brother, Jim Buss; both served in the Navy at the same time.

I've attached a picture of the ship, as it is not included on your list of destroyers, and I'm curious to know why not. Two smaller pictures he sent me are of himself and his friends (maybe you can enlarge them. I was afraid I would exceed your limitations, being an amateur at this):
