Comments: I served on the Radford as a Fire Control Technician during the years of 1958 through August 1961. Our home port was Pearl Harbor. We made several West Pac cruises. The Pacific was a beautiful sea to sail and there were many very enjoyable ports to visit in Japan, Formosa, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Australia. Unfortunately, (or maybe fortunately) I was high lined onboard just after the Radford steamed back from Australia. Im still a pollywog. I was high lined three times before finally arriving on the Radford somewhere in the Pacific.

Some of the names of my mates that come to mind are: Burns, Chief Thompson, Ghram, Stickel, Zimmerman and others.

Comments: We are trying to locate former ship's company who served aboard the USS Radford DD/DDE-446 any time from 1942 to 1969. We have formed an association and have a newsletter you should be getting to find out what happened to your ship and shipmates. We have established a museum and archives in Ohio to keep her place in history. We have found over 1000 Radford men so far. If you or a relative served on the Radford, or if you know someone who served on the Radford we need to find you.

Comments: My recruiter, the guy that put me in the Navy was a former Radford crewman. His name was Dewey Webber. He retired in 1972 as a GMGC and was aboard in the mid to late 60's I believe. I don't think Chief Webber has a computer but if anyone would like to get ahold of him, please feel free to contact me and I'll pass on any information. Thanks

Comments: Caught the ship at San Francisco Navy Yard in 1951, I believe or 1950. That's when the ship changed it's desig from DD to DDE as the twin 5"/38's were removed and added the single mounts, and other changes.
At the start of the Korean war we were in Subic Bay, up all night taking on supplies and joined TF77. Made two trips to Korea on her.
