Webmastered by Roger Rieman, Official Cony Association Roster Keeper
I served on the USS Cony DD-508 from 1962 until 1965 in the OI Division.
I originated this website in 1997 and have reacquainted with many of my
shipmates and have many new
shipmate friends because of it and
hopefully you will too.
This website is NOT part of the USS Cony Association and
not supported by
association donations at my request.
I'm happy to announce that there is a new DVD
available in the Cony Store. It is of films that the late
Joseph Dodson took while he was aboard
the Cony during a period 1950-1952. His wife,
Nancy Dodson not only donated
the footage, but paid
for having the films transferred
to DVD, which was
quite an expensive process. Jim Knapp handled the complete
ordeal of having them transferred. Thank's Jim.
I have bought one of the copies and reviewed it.
the films have degraded some over the years
they are still quite viewable and a very nostalgic
experience. Visit the Cony Ship Store to see details.
