Last time I saw the Forrest Sherman was 1966-69 in Newport Rhode Island. At that time it was DD-931. Head of it's Class. May the new Forrest Sherman have a good life. john Anderson DD-853 Charles H, Roan and DD-858 Fred T. Berry 1966-1969.
Merry Christmas to all on board! My God bless you and keep you safe!

Good Morning CDR F. J. Azzarello, My name is Curtis Preston. I served aboard the original USS Forrest Sherman, DD-931. I was on her from 9/73 to 6/77 as a cook. We spent alot of time in the MED. It was a great time in my life... If it would be possible could you send me a patch of your ship for my collection. send to Curt Preston, 4004 W. 14th ST., LOT # 10, North Platte, Nebraska 69101. Thank You skipper. sail on and THANK YOU to you and your crew for your service to our country.
Forrest Sherman friends and family, Since we last updated our page we have been busy completing the mission. We have conducted several replenishments-at-sea and strait transits as well as training evolutions in support of engineering, damage control and VBSS. We also successfully completed sea and anchor details as part of pulling into Djibouti. The CSs and FSAs provided an amazing Thanksgiving dinner with help from the wardroom. We also had the pleasure of promoting Sailors to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Class Petty Officer and awarding 15 Sailors with their Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist pin.
So what is a realistic deadline for mailing a package to our sailors this Christmas? Has anybody used Amazon Prime shipping to buy and ship a present to a ship at sea?
Hello Forrest Sherman friends and family, Since our last update we have been busy! We completed a replenishment-at-sea and a vertical replenishment, we held several different types of small arms gunshoots as well as a CWIS gunshoot. We've also held several damage control and engineering drills.
