Subject: USS Edmonds (DE-406) - Ships Patch Photo

To All,

I'm a former OSC (USNR) and served aboard the USS Edmonds on ACDUTRA as a SA (USNR) back in 1963? As I'm nearing retirement from Active Duty, I'm putting together a Memory Book of all my assignment over the years. This includes pictures of all of the ships patches of the ships that I served on while on AD or ACDUTRA.

The only ships patch that I don't have an image of is the one for the USS Edmonds (DE-406). Is there any chance any of you have an image (e.g. .jpeg, .bmp, etc) you could email me, or direct me to where I can obtain one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
