This one is of the Jarvis DD799 as she came along side the Cunningham while we were sitting still with the coast of Korea in the background. We were often on patrol between Yang Do Island, a ROK marine outpost, and the mainland to prevent the North Koreans from attacking the island.

Is this where I post post an inquiry in search of a man who was on the Jarvis in approx. late 50's--early 60's. Name is Bob Hendricks (aka Bobby Gene Hendricks). Was on the Jarvis at Long Beach, CA.

Saw this web site and thought I might have the possibility of located the man here.

Thank you,

Beverly McCalla

Many Thanks to NavSource
