A word from the Association. This photo album was created to help capture the memories of the crew of the U.S.S. Richard S. Edwards - DD950. Participation by the former crewmembers and their families has been amazing. As you browse through these pages, you will most certainly be taken down a trip through memory lane. You will also have the privilege of sharing the memories of the servicemen who served aboard the Ready Eddie, before and after you. We hope that these images will inspire you to share your memories with us. We also hope to see you at the next reunion.

Pictures 1958 - 1970 and 1971 - 1982. Many of our shipmates have sent in pictures taken while they were aboard the Ready Eddie. Here you can see what we looked like way back then. We have photos taken while at work, at rest, and at play. To view the pictures select the time period you are interested in from the top of this page.

Cruise Books - We have obtained several cruise books from our shipmates, for posting to the internet. We will be adding more as we complete the task of scanning and formatting them for the web pages. Select the menu item above to see more. You may also jump directly to the 1962-63, 1966, 1972, 1977, or 1981 WestPAC cruise books.

Where Are They Now? - Wondering where your old friends from the ship are now, and what they look like? So are we. If you have photos of yourself, your family, or shipmates taken after you time on the DD950, we'd love to see them. Take a look at the Where are they now? pages and see where some of your shipmates are today.

Reunions - The main purpose of the Association, is to reunite our shipmates. We try to have reunions every couple of years for that purpose. The reunions are held at different locations around the country in order that our shipmates who cannot travel large distances have an opportunity to meet with their friends. To see pictures from prior reunions visit this site.We also encourage "mini" reunions, smaller get-togethers of folks in an area within driving distance of each other. If you have photos from such a "mini" event, send them to us for publishing on our site.
