Comments: I am looking for any information anyone might have regarding my grandfather, Fred D'annunzio. He was an italian man with black hair, brown eyes, a pronounced nose and may have worn glasses. He served on the Buck during WW2 and, as a gift to my father, I am looking for anyone who knew him or even of him. Sadly, my grandfather passed away 2 years ago and little is known about his military service.
ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Comments: I am looking for shipmates on USS Magpie(AMS-25),
USS Toucan (AM-387) and USS Buck (DD-761).

Hi Ted, Yes the Toucan (AM-387) was was very much
in Korea. I first went to Korea in USS Buck
(DD-761) then transferred to Toucan in March 52
and we were among the last to leave.

After the Armistise we were assigned along with 3
other minesweepers and a DE to patrol around Koji
Do to prevent the Chinese or Russians from coming
over and forceably taking the thousands of
North Korean and Chinese POW's home against their
will. We patrolled 63 days without a relief.

When relieved we headed for Long Beach, Calif. and
arrived in late November 1953. The Toucan has a
very good war record for the number of mines
swept, Railroad bridges destroyed, and number of
Refugees/Pow's taken. Ed.

I enlisted in Oct 1947 after serving 3 1/2 years
in Merchant Marine during WWII. I was on a 3 year
enlistment and when the Korean War started I was
in USS BUCK in Inchon Harbor. I was involuntary
extended and I beat the system. I reenlisted for 6
and stayed for 25. I am what is known in the Navy
as a Mustang. That is an enlisted man that came up
thru the ranks. I retired in 1973 as a LT. (O-3)
after doing a couple of tours in Viet Nam.
