Thanks for your kind offer to use the photo's you have. Maybe you could scan them and send them to me at mosquitofleet@comcast.net
Sending them to me gives me the chance to enlarge them, fix them, or send them out for reprint.

The USS LEARY DD-879 is the second Leary, a Gearing Class DD commissioned May 1945. The first LEARY, DD-158, was a WICKES class DD (four piper) that was sunk on Dec 24, 1943.

A friend of mines Dad was on the USS SCHENCK (DD-159), Leary's sister ship. The SCHENCK was with her on Dec 24, 1943 when they ran into a U-Boat Wolfpack that was after the USS CARD. I went to their joint Reunions for 10 years. Amazing stories from the surviors of the LEARY.
