A friend of mine is putting together a reunion here for the USS Young DD 580. He served on it all during WWII.

The reunion will be in Lafayette, La. on April 20-24, 2005. This also coincides with the Festival International De Louisian that is here at the same time.

For information please contact Roland Bienvenu at 337-984-0598. If you can help by putting this information on any other sites, please do.


Many Thanks to NavSource
