I was stationed on the Harveson DER 316 from Nov 1955
until we transferred her to the mothball fleet in Sacromento, Ca on 30 June 1960. She did a lot of squeaking and groaning, but she a good ship

I was assigned to the OI Division and worked in CIC as did many others in that crew. Radar picket was a very boring and monotonous running atound in circles for 24 0r 25 days. We all looked forward to the departure from the assigned watch station, and bringing the engines on line to make a dash to our home port.. .MEMORIES>>

Comments: I have been knowing that this ship was named after my cousin but I had the wrong name which was his mothers name, Mrs. T.L. Herlong. I was looking for information why was the ship named after Harveson? I now know he was killed on the USS Utah at Pearl Harbor. He was in the first group there, that was killed.
