In Memory of Anne McCarthy 1933 - 2006

Much of the historic data presented on the site would not have been possible without the assistance of noted DE historian Anne McCarthy.  Anne was dedicated to preserving the history of the Destroyer Escort and publishing historically correct information. She was a frequent contributor to DESANews.  She used many resources and her information has been cross-referenced.  Over 35 years of research was conducted to gather this in-depth up-to-date information.  DESA mourns the sudden loss of Anne on 16 November 2006.

Pat Perrella, USS SLATER DE 766 volunteer curator, has contributed much historical information and photographs to this site.  Her research is ongoing and will be presented on this site as well as in DESANews.

Pat works closely with the DESA webmaster and is to be commended for her dedication to preserving the memory of the destroyer escort.

Information provided by these researchers is correct to the best of the webmaster's  knowledge.  I am aware that there is information on the Internet that differs from the researcher's information.  Corrections are welcome in an effort to present the most accurate information available. Corrections should be sent to the webmaster along with complete documentation of the resource for the information.


 

Your webmaster issued a call for help and DESA members responded in their usual dedicated caring way.  The following members have volunteered to transcribe documents for this web site and their work is ongoing.

We owe them a well deserved Thank You for helping to keep the memories alive.  Well Done!
