Good Morning,
I served aboard the Uss Renshaw DDE-499 from October 1959 to June 1961.I was in the USNR and was in the quartermaster gang. There was only three of us....the chief , the third class qm, and me a seaman. On our WESPAC cruise we stood port?starboard watches. But as I look back on those times, I realize just how much I really enjoyed serving aboard this ship.And being fresh out of high school my mind wasn't on taking pictures. So, now I don't have any pictures of the ship I served on. I now ask you if there are any real good{quality} pictures of the Renshaw that I might purchase? Also, as I collect caps are there any baseball caps out there with the ships name and logo on them that I might find? Or anything else that might be of interest. I await your reply,and thanks a million in advance!

Have enjoyed every minute, but looking forward to what lies beyond. The universe makes our "ship" so small. Would like to hear from any one who's hobby is astronomy. NOT ASTROLOGY!!!!!!!

If "Charlie Johnson" is still around, would like to get in touch with him. Thanks for the work you are putting in on your web-site.Have a very 'MERRY CHRISTMAS" and to be particularly, politically correct, enyoy to your best whatever you believe in........

George....from Corpus Christi.......

[They may be coming after us to change the name of our city, which in Latin means "Body of Christ"] God bless you and your family.

Hello
My name is Marvin Lund. I found a sea bag tag from my Uncle who served abord the Renshaw during WWII, but I did not see his name on the roster or on the deceased roster. His name was

Carlise C. Sangl BT1
serial # 3874913.

I'm sorry I don't have the dates of service, just the sea baggage slip that went inside the bag. I'm sending you this so that you can update your records. Thanks

Subject: RENSHAW PLAQUE

MY WIFE AND I HAVE JUST RETURNED HOME FROM A VISIT TO THE ADMIRAL NIMITZ MUSEUM AND THE MUSEUM OF THE PACIFIC AT FREDERICKSBURG, TX. WE WERE THERE ON MAY 27, 2005, THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. I WAS REALLY PROUD TO SEE THE NEW PLAQUE OF THE RENSHAW. IT MADE ME FEEL PROUD THAT I HAD SERVED 3 1/2 YEARS ON BOARD THIS FINE SHIP. I REALLY LIKE THE LOCATION OF THE PLAQUE AS IT IS NEAR THE "PLAZA OF THE PRESIDENTS" AND A LOT OF VISITORS WILL SEE IT. MY WIFE JUST HAD TO TAKE SEVERAL PICTURES OF ME STANDING BESIDE IT.

JUST WANTED TO PASS THIS INFO ON TO YOU.......

Don,
Just want to pass the word that Ed Ettel passed away yesterday morning. He was diagnosed with lung cancer about 3 years ago. He was under going treatment at Fox chase, and seemed to be doing well, until about 3 weeks ago. At that time they found it had spread to his only kidney, and to his brain.
Anyway, my sister just wanted me to send word.
As of now Bill Scareon and I are hoping to make this year's reunion in Baltimore.
Hope all is well with you and your family.
 
Yours Truly

Glenn
Sadly, I am notifying you of the death of Brenton G Thorne, who passed away recently. Brent a quartermaster, was a plank owner, and served aboard Renshaw from late 1942 to late 1944. For those two years he was the number one helmsman. Brent finished his naval career as a CPO. Brent was a special friend and a great shipmate. He is missed.
