I have many great memories from serving on the USS Taylor. It was a great ship with a great crew. Too bad these old war ships just can't go on forever, just like the crew members. At least we are left with the feeling of A Job Well Done.

Years Served: 1952-53
I have delegated much of my time to the USS Hugh W. Hadley DD774 web site and reunion affairs.

Unfortunately I am now in my declining years and my health is not 100%. This is my way of saying that I just don't have time for another ship.

In my 20 years of active duty, USS TAYLOR (DDE 468) was by far my BEST and most enjoyable tour! It was the crew that made that possible, because it was the crew that made the ship!

If you want to connect up with more TAYLOR Sailors, contact me at:

Hope to hear from you! We have a reunion coming up again in 2010. Have one every 2 years.

My mother in Law was going through my father in Laws effects. We found a bracelet that has USS Taylor DDE468 on the back. On the front a name with Japanese writing on the snide, is Allen Floyd. Does anyone have information to the person or family to return this momentum. Respectfully, Jason Coutts
