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.

See the Movie "Greyhound (2020)" depicting a Fletcher class destroyer starring Tom Hanks


I was glued to the screen watching Tom Hanks commanding the fictional USS Keeling, a Fletcher class destroyer in 1942. The movie is based on the book "The Good Shepherd" and portrays Commander Krause leading the escorting destroyers protecting vital troops and supplies to England through a dangerous section of the North Atlantic while battling wolf packs of Nazi U-boats.
Cony sailors will have flashbacks with the super video depicting the Fletcher class in rough seas. Even more familiar would be the bridge scenes if you attened the 2004 Cony reunion in Baton Rouge. The movie was filmed on and around the USS Kidd and the bridge scenes were right off the ship. Here is a link to a synopsis and a trailer with some footage from the movie. Greyhound Movie
