Comments: Does anyone recognize my father's name? He passed away in 1970, and I have inherited his photos, etc., which I'm willing to scan/share from my father's service in the US Navy aboard the USS Porterfield in the Korean War.

I have some good B and W photos of him and some of his shipmates at sea.

I have a news clipping from The Mirror, LA, Sat., 4/28/51, "3 More Destroyers Rejoin Pacific Fleet"

I also have a couple of large color photos of the USS Porterfield.

Comments: Ray, I saw your comment in the USS Marshall file. I remember you from boot camp as one of the contingent of North Carolinians. You mentioned Homer Sagely, Joe Szabo and Jack Reilly, all of whom I served with. Szabo and I were close buddies during my Marshall days. If you were a radarman on the Porterfield, you surely knew Gene (Chick) See. Sadly, Gene died in 2002. He and I were from the same home town, graduated from high school together and joined the Navy together in January 1951. Hope this fills in some gaps for you.
