Donald Soward, age 61, was lost last Sunday as a result of a government experiment in Nevada that failed. Investigators could only say that Donald knew of the dangers that were involved and was a willing and eager participant. No trace of Donald was found. He leaves behind his long time wife and companion Patti and his two sons Dennis and Mark. He was born and raised at 623 Elm Street in Covington, Kentucky. He had no other living family.3 cApril, 2007

Reside in Franklin, Tennessee. Retired SMCS - served aboard the USS Eaton from 3/60 to 8/61. Was in the Bay of Pigs invasion also as an 18 year old SMSN (striker). Learned a tremendous amount from my seniors - a great beginning to a 21-year career. Thanks to all with whom I had a chance to be educated.
Wish everyone the very best. Fair winds and following seas!!

My brother-in-law Richard Toth was aboard the Eaton from 1962 to 1966 in Fire Control. We're looking for apparel to buy him for Christmas. Is there a location/website that anyone suggests to purchase from?
Thanks for your help.

Vermont - I served aboard USS Eaton briefly in 1965 before going to COMTHREE. I remember GITMO REFTRA, a diversion to Montego Bay and an after steering that crapped out around Cape Hatteras. God bless all you guys.

Westford, Mass. I thought that I'ld let my old shipmates know that I wrote a book. No it's not about the Wespac tour of 67. I wrote it about bad health. It's available at www.illnessdefined.com - In it I define bad health and how to get it. I've been not well since 1971 and have done alot of research about disease and conditions. Plenty information on my website about the causes, incase you don't want to buy the book.lLeave your comments on by Guest Book page or email me at this email address.

I am sad to report that LT. Charles Duffy, formerly Communications Officer and Special Sea Detail OOD passed to his reward recently. Charlie was aboard the USS Eaton in the 1952 - 1954 time frame. Rollo Taylor has been on a mission to find Charlie over the last 50 years and finally found him in Florida earlier in 2006. A few of us seized upon the opportunity for a spontaneous get together in Virginia Beach reviewing our years aboard the Eaton. Great ship, great crew and good times.

I served on Eaton with the Commodores staff from 1/55 to 9/55. I was YN2 and I came from the Bache where I had served since 1952. I am now living in Charlote NC. Since I was not ships company I do not attend reunions, but I do attend Bache reunions and remember the division ships very well.

I was onboard the Good ship Eaton from jan 58 thru April 61. Gene Dean got a set of orders to a reserve training ship in the Bronx (USS Delong DE-684) and he didn't want to go, We were both SM2's so I took them. I'M A WHOLE LOT SALTIER THAN KENEDY, DEAN, AND REDLEAD. I CAN'T EVEN GO SWIMMING BECAUSE THE WATER GETS ALL SALTY. ANDY

My father, Jack Wise was onboard the USS Eaton in the South Pacific during WWII . I have his diary and a scrapbook of letters that his mother saved which I am transcribing into a book for him. I already made up a book for him of the USS Eaton DD 510 with history and photos. He was very appreciative as he was 17 when he was on board and went through the Pacific Theater and has great and not so great memories as so many do.

Hey shipmates. I've been perusing some of our other ships sites. It's a lot of fun. Even put some pictures on some of the eaton.
Have you seen the page for the Mississinewa AO-144? It was our oiler in the Carribean.

Remember the Shenandoh, the tender in Norfolk, and the Franklin, the old carrier tied up close to us awaiting dismantling?
