Many good memories of Westpac and the old Wedderburn crew. I wonder how many remember the time that the ship rammed us from behind at the dock in Hawaii.I was a DC2 ad was released from the ship in the Phillipines just before the final return to the states.My email is wearout1@aol.com or thru my web page which is erweartech.com. Haven't heard from anyone in years. Good luck to all.I would like to hit one of the reunions some time.

I met up with the Wedderburn while she was in drydock at Long Beach. Copp BM2 checked me in, showed me the middle bunk in 1st. Div. He showed me ALL his tatoos the next morning. I was not impressed with him or the ship and I was thousands of miles from home. The journey had begun. Today, I am an active working member of the USS Wedderburn DD-684 Association promoting reunion activity. You may contact me at llanierdd684@gmail.com. Come to the next reunion and meet the guys from WWII through VietNam. Your friends will be there too.
