Welcome to U.S.S. Caperton.info!

This site is dedicated to the the sailors of the WWII Destroyer DD-650 otherwise known as the USS Caperton

With the valuable assistance of many former sailors of the USS Caperton, I have assembled a site including information on the ship, its history, and the people who built and sailed her. 

There is also a growing photo gallery of images of both the ship and her sailors. If you or a family member was involved in the USS Caperton, please email me at donald@caperton.info to share your stories and/or photos with others. 

While Activity of the Association has decreased, if you are a former sailor or family member of a former sailor of the Caperton and are not already a member please email me for information about the association organized and operated by fellow former sailors.
