I was attached to the USS FURSE DD882 from 1969 thru 1970 when we were deployed to a Red Sea Cruise. I donít remember if they had a cruse book for that period or not. It is usually assembled by the shipís volunteers.

I was a crewmember of that Destroyer during 1952 thru 1954. The exact listing for that ship is DDR 882. That ship was built in Texas as a radar picket ship. I'm sure this is only an oversight. As soon as I can scan a picture of my former tin can, I will forward it to you.

Thank You,
