Ward Collection Richard Ward, son of Calvin Ward who sailed on DE-635, supplied these pictures that appear to the webmaster to be from 1980 or 81. The Phalanx gun mounts have been installed but the Helo-nets are still on the fantail. These guns were installed and the nets removed in the yards in Long Beach in that time frame. These pictures were taken by Calvin Ward during a tour of the ship and I remember a number of the crew of DE-635 visiting during that time period.
