We are seeking information on the USS Jarvis and her crews.
Files and photos may be E-mailed to us and we will incorporate them into these pages.
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
