This website is
dedicated to the several thousand
sailors and officers from nearly every state in the union
that served proudly aboard the USS Haynsworth DD700, during
26 years of volatile times.
The intent of this Web site is to both enlighten those who
are not familiar with life aboard a U.S. Destroyer, and to
hopefully renew old memories, as well as bringing shipmates
back in touch that more than likely have not seen or spoken
with one another in years.
feature history of this fine ship and we plan to focus on
providing more data that is currently not available.
We will also have an extensive Photo Gallery, including many old
snapshots taken by the crew while serving on-board, and we
will continue to accept photos that are submitted to us and
include these new photographs from time to time.
Our Crew Information Database includes more than 3000 names
of men that served aboard the USS Haynsworth DD700
and many of these people are well-informed and are connected to
the World Wide Web. If you served aboard this ship, but are not
listed or are not a member of this association and would
like to be,
1988 a small group of men that had served aboard the
USS Haynsworth met and decided to establish an Association,
and since that time Haynsworth people have met yearly to
keep the fellowship and spirit alive. We also intend
to keep you abreast as to when and where the next reunion
will be held.
There are many Web sites that provide information about the
Haynsworth and our intention is not to take away from any of
them. In fact, you may want to pay a visit to our other
at this Website will be to feature information about crew
members [both then and now], provide contact information for
those that wish to be included, and to give some coverage to the
reunions that take place each year.
