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.
