Comments: What a delight to find this site.

My husband, Frank Pettit, was a Gunners Mate, 2nd Class, on the Douglas H. Fox, DD-779 from 1951 to 1955 during the Korean War. His ship was fired on many times off the coast of Korea.
It would be great to hear from any of the guys who served at that time. Frank would be happy to hear from you. He is now 82 yrs. old and still has fond memories of his Navy days.
We live in S.C., outside of Myrtle Beach.

Comments: My grandfather was a Gunner's Mate on the USS Douglas H. Fox. He was mount captain of Mount 53, and from March 1, 1952 until November 21, 1952, he was the leading, enlisted gunner's mate in the second division and served directly under Ens. Fredric Stoessel. I was wondering if anyone new him, because he is deceased now. I have very little to go on of his time in the Navy.

Comments: On November 9, 2007 My Dad, Chief Petty Officer John Joseph Binetti, my father, was fighting his final and last battle albeit he fought many and oh how proudly did he do just that.He passed away at 2 pm that day and I lost "My Dad My Hero"...

Still he remains forever one of America's finest coming from "The Greatest Generation" his ashes are now awaiting a ship to take him to his final resting place off the shores of Okinawa. The exact place Kerama Retto. Where at radar Pickett #9 on May 17 1945~10 men aboard the USS Douglas H. Fox DD214 among the commissioned crew lost there lives and sixteen other men were seriously injured~ some maimed for life.

Oh how I heard the action reports from my father's own lips over and over again that fateful day as the setting sun set and the Kamikaze planes hit...as the bomb passed through a portion of Mount 11 and exploded on the main deck under Mount 1. He told me how under this engagement the fox shot down 5 enemy planes but not before he could save but only 3 mens lives..

One of which visited him for years.... with but only one leg .Remembering that on that direful day from whence pulling him from the front gun... this shipmates name was Sweeny. I can still hear him as he told me this, "Your father is a real War Hero young lady, just like you see on TV.... he saved my life and almost lost his own doing it" I was a just a little girl and will always remember that. Sweeny just passed away a few years ago. May he rest in peace.

It behooves me then to share with you here...now... about why my father is the hero I wrote about in the poem that was surprisingly published .. all in his honor.. titled My Dad, My Hero....

Although he stood among a "great deal" like himself, his wishes were always in the end to be laid to rest among those he could not save through the fires that engulfed the Fox that flagitious day and on the 3 ships he stood aboard that went down through treacherous war waters. He was able to come home from and that he was never able to sleep a full night remembering always those that did not. Argel he saved many!

For a soldier stands with a strong desire to live yet always a willingness to die!

He lived his life a true Military Veteran and never merely utter red words of his honor to his country .. He lived by them.

It is the veteran, not the preacher who gives us freedom of religion...

It is the veteran, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press..

It is the veteran not the poet who has given us freedom of speech..

It is the veteran not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to assemble..

It is the veteran not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial..

It is the veteran not the politician who has given us the right to vote..

It is the veteran who serves under the flag

and who will stand out of a wheelchair to salute a flag....my Dad!

A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve --
is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made
payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and
including his life.'
That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today,
who no longer understand that fact..

On November 9, 2008 to show how military proud my fathers life was, family friends and military personnel joined together in a Final Call and 21 gun Salute for Chief Petty Officer John J. Binetti at the San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio which overlooks the San Francisco Bay. Although he wished for no service and his final wishes were to be scattered in the South China Sea, as he still awaits a ship to his final resting place to be among those shipmates he spoke so often about. I had been in close contact with a fellow Chief Petty Officer Wong who told me of its History ...The San Francisco Golden Gate National Cemetery at the Presidio is a very beautiful place. He told me dad will be honored among many of the decorated veterans who served our country. There are numerous high ranking and heads of state buried there. The cemetery has war dead dating back to the Civil War. Every Memorial Day, over 1,500 attends the remembrance ceremony at the San Francisco Golden Gate National Cemetery at the Presidio. Chief Wong was present at Dad's memorial service. It's called military honor. I hadn't met him until that day.

We then proceeded to Fort Point under the Golden Gate Bridge which also holds much history here in California for a flower ceremony as we threw flowers into the Bay and have them float perhaps with the thought that as the SF Bay waters meets the Pacific Ocean the flowers may in time find there way to Dad. Many of OLD Salt have sailed under the Golden Gate including my father many times!

And together with my immediate family and friends we paid homage in a message of gratitude and honor to my father on his anniversary of his passing the military way.... that he so deserved.

My veneration will never waver for my dear old dad as he through his tough military upbringing, taught me to respect, love and to always hold high reverence to my country and faith.

To all our military men and women who are fighting for our freedom in peril in far away lands please know my prayers are with you all. For brought up a Chiefs daughter I know that "Freedom is Never Free"....

Wishing all Fair winds and Following Seas

Sincerely,

Nettie Ventura
Chief Binetti's Daughter

I miss you Dad
Old Glory is out front!

Comments: I would just like to update that my dad did hear from a friend after posting in May. It was really nice for him as he was in the hospital for the last month and I had just arrived in Reno at his home when the phone rang and it was a friend from the commissioning crew on the Douglas H. Fox that took the time to call and I went to the hosipital and returned the call so my dad could talk to him. They actually remembered each other after all these years. It warmed my heart to see the light in my fathers eye when he spoke his navy lingo!! He seemed to have such a good recollection and was very very ill at the time. I thought I was going to lose him. The good news is that I just flew back up last Monday and brought him home after a month at the VA hospital he made it through yet another battle. This one was tough but he wants to see my son graduate at the end of this year from college and is going to give it one last warriors fight to see it through. So for fathers day, I wrote a poem and had it lazer engraved for him in a beautiful piece of glass and called it...MY Dad, My Hero.......and I do believe I speak for many of you when you hear this, I dedicate this, as a daughter to the many dads who have served our country and truly are our heroes.....Happy Fathers Day......

MY DAD, MY HERO

If someone were to ask me
Why I'm so proud of you,
I'd have so many reasons
But here are just a few.

From the colonist, who rebelled,
to the soldier of today,
your my hero Dad
I know not what else to say.

You sailed many seas of blue
and deserve tribute that is due,
So very proud a daughter I am
and Dad I sincerely love you.

You are my American hero Dad,
your devotion is second to none,
Your courage and braveness alone
caused many battles to be won.

We have beaten the forces of evil
and carried our flag far and wide,
Because your my Dad , your my hero,
my heart is filled with pride,

Only because of you Dad and the price
you willingly did pay,
Only because of you Dad,
Old Glory still flies today!

May God Bless all our military men and women who serve our country!!Anyone who wants to get in touch with my dad it is the 775 area code number. He is on oxygen and has just battled double pneumonia after taking a bad fall and is nearly 87 YEARS OLD, that along with his diabetis and enphazema and edema makes for a rough time but he is a fighter and I tell him to fight like he did back in May 1947 when he was determined to stay alive on the USS DOUGLAS H. FOX DD779 ......picket nine, when all he could do was find every ounce of faith and strength he had within to do what it took to save who he could and fight to stay alive himself.
He lost his best friends on May 17th 1947 aboard this ship and speaks their names often and this is where he will have his final resting place. My dad truley is My hero......
