The 2017 Reunion of the
WWII Veterans of USS Whitehurst DE-634

Back row l to r:  Pat Leslie. Pat Dean (Daughters of Gordon & Roy) Ruth Graham and friend Jim Spiro, Jim Lawrence Jr, Rosalie Lawrence

On the last full weekend of June, 2017 a small number of Whitehurst WWII Vets
met for their annual Shipmates Reunion.  They were accompanied by friends
and relatives, but due to construction, they had to find another Motel.  After much searching and negotiating, they arranged to meet at the

Clarion Inn & Suites

5335 Central Ave Pike,  KNOXVILLE, TN 

WWII Vets attending were Gordon Leslie, who is President of the group, Lewis Cowden, and Roy Dean.  Jim Lawrence, Whitehurst Vet from a later era, has served long and well as Secretary for the group, attending almost all their reunions.
