Subject: USS Knapp DD 653
I have three photo's I took when I reported aboard the Knapp in 1955 or 56 (will have to check to be sure which year).
When I came aboard I was a TOTAL boot SA just out of reserve boot camp and was doing my two weeks active duty on the Knapp while she was in SDIEGO.
Spent my time aboard in the bilges! Which gave me the added incentive to strike for Radioman!
Attached are two photo's as requested. Let me know when you receive them and I will send the third.
