The History of the USS Duncan (DDR-874)
Commissioning Day, 25 February, 1945, Orange, Texas.
|1944 - 1957
EFL Service Logs document the first 13 years of Duncan History. Using a columnized format, these logs document Duncan's travels; departure and arrival dates to each port of call and brief remarks outlining general assignments and duties during each at sea and in port availability.
|1958 - 1960
The above two year period is presently not represented with any Logs or Yearly Narratives. Any former crewmembers who can help fill in this gap with either form of recorded history is encouraged to provide same to the webmaster of this site.
Duncan's service from 1960 -65 is documented from material gathered from the Navy History Museum, and the National Archives by this site's webmaster. The last five years of her commissioned service are supplied by Commanders Birch, Stephan, and Turnage in the form of yearly narrative histories. The last year of her active service, (1970) under LCDR Carbone, is still being sought.
