I just have to say that this site is so wonderful. Bless all of you who have a part in it. Thanks to all of those that have served and for the the sacrifices of the families that stood behind them.
My Dad, Scott Rader, passed away on June 23, 2010. I still have a sadness in my heart but being able to come to the sight and see pictures of the reunion that he and my Mom attended is a comfort to me. I remember how proud he was and how much he enjoyed taking part in the 2006 reunion. I am thankful that I can share the legacy with his grandchildren through this sight. Thank you for the joy and comfort that have been brought through the reunions, the website, and the stories that have been told. It means so much. God Bless!

Hi,

I wanted to come and sign the book today. My father, Dr Billy M Duncan, was on the Menard during Korea and is listed on the Korea roster here. He passed away on March 4th, and I come here often to your page.....when I am really missing him.

The Menard was a part of his past....and one he talked about to me. He was 75 and passed away after nearly a decade of Parkinson's Disease and a recent diagnosis of Lung Cancer.

He was a very good man, who after the Navy pursued his degree, and ended up with his Doctorate in Education from the University of Alabama. He tought for many years in Alabama, then Pensacola, Florida, before spending 30+ years at University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

We miss him terribly, and I wanted to share his story.........Thank you so much,

Byron Duncan

My uncle, Donald Thayer, served aboard the Menard during Korea. The stories he told me of his ship and shipmates, and the deep blue of the Pacific have stayed with me since I was a child. This is a wonderful site. Thank you for providing the history of this ship and filling in the blanks for me. Now I know why he never missed a reunion.

It's always great to go back the the Menard site and view the photos. My grandfather, "Pete" Peterson, served on the Menard and in fact sailed out of Astoria, Oregon during the WW-II. I had the honor of speaking with Howard Cederlund and Dustin Stout a couple of years ago when I first found this site. I think that it is so neat to locate buddies that my grandfather served with. He didn't talk about the war very much and understandably so. My family was very pleased to know that I contacted some of his friends so many years later.

Thank you for serving and sacrificing for our country, i was watching on actual footage of Okinawa,wow, just the sacrifice. You make me proud to be an American and thankful for the freedom you fought for. My father in law was on the USS Menard, his name was Joe Foley Sr, from Dubuque, IA, he was a signalman on the Menard, maybe someone here remembers him.I never knew him, but from the stories my husband shares with me about him, wished that i knew him when he was alive. He passed in 1992. Thank you again!

My father Benjamin M Church Sr. served on the USS Menard during WWII. He passes away in 1985 but I remember as a child some of the "war stories" that he relived during his time that he served. Please feel free to contact me. Thanks for the ever expanding and professional web site.
