Ship Reunions

 

October 20, 2010 Branson, Missouri

 

Boone Kemp (top left) and six of his World War II shipmates gathered together last week for their ship reunion in Branson, Missouri. The USS Dyson (DD572), a destroyer built in Orange, Texas, served throughout the Pacific Ocean, from the South Pacific to Okinawa. This warship served with other destroyers in what was known to "Tokyo Rose" as the "Little Beaver" squadron. After the ship reunion was over, Boone, his son David and wife Ginger of Austin, spent a few more days in Branson attending some of the well-known shows and celebrating Boone's 87th birthday.
