USS Whitehurst Logo by: Pat Stephens, Webmaster, DESA



Out to sea went the reserve ship Whitehurst

With a run down hull ready to burst

It bounced along the ocean with a lotta pride

A lotta men got sea sick and wished they had died

The ship was just on a one year cruise

And when at sea the men the men missed their booze

Out at sea the ship had lotta drills

But at home the men had a lotta bills.


The End
