USS Kilty

You mentioned on your website that you would like photos of any of the ships listed.  Here is a photo of the USS Kilty (DD 137) that my wife's grandfather brought home from the war.  Unfortunately the story of what really happened with this ship is not nearly as exciting as the one that came down through the family, but hopefully this pic will be of assistance.  Thanks    Robert  Marshall.    (Thanks for the photo!)

USS Kennison
My father was on the Kennison DD 138 as a diver at Keyport and then to San Francisco. I have numerous pictures of diving and fun on the beach with names and dates on the backs. I also have 2 dance cards honoring Commander R.P. Emrich. I did not know about his diving for torpedoes in 1918. Had to be very new at the time.
