My dad, William Boyd Jr served on the Lee Fox
I served on the Lee Fox, DE 65, APD 45 as a RDM 3/c from 10/13/1944 until 1/1/22/1946. I am 92 years old and have just completed my book about my experiences and our ships travels while aboard. My book is entitled "Memiors of a World War ll Destroyer Escort Sailor."
I am blessed with good health and still make several 1,000 mile trips alone each year.
looking for anyone who served in IUWG2 TEAM 21 1967-1969
Hello my name is Steve Genslinger. I served with iuw-2 from 1964 to 1966. I worked with the CB's in the garage. I have been trying to locate people that served with me. There was a chief Wills, stephan Brock, Woods. That's about all I can remember for now. Is there a place to go on the net to find a rooster of the sailors that was there? I had the chance to go by there about 25 years ago and it didn't look as if it was still going. I know all the stock pile of big round buoys were gone. Do you know if it has been closed down? Maybe you can help me
Looking for Ken Desautels who posted here in 2006. We both served in IUWG 2 Unit 23 in the 60's. His last known email was firstname.lastname@example.org
I was on a sister ship, USS Ira Jeffery DE 63, in the Atlantic for 18 months and DE 65 was a part of our escort group Escort Division 12. I suggest you write to Ed Jorgensen, 1336 Birchwood Avenue, Roslyn, PA 19001 Tel: (215) 884-1007. You can tell him that Everett Schrader referred you to him. Good luck. Ed has a lot of info on the ship and spent a long pweriod aboard.
MY father was on the Lee Fox somewhere between her commissioning in 1943 and 1945. He was Lt.j.g. William G. Norwood, from Savannah, Ga. Due to circumstances, I never had the opportunity to talk with him regarding the war, his experiences or duties. I am his son and was born in 1950. My father passed away in a VA hospital in 1977. I would like to hear from someone that possibly knew him or was on the ship at the same time and would have had the same experiences. I was Navy from 1969 to 1975, active duty was at Inshore Undersea Warfare Group 2 (IUWG2 MU23) Little Creek, Va. Thanks.
