Fred Grosscup
US Navy 1965 – 1969
Navy Destroyer USS Everett F. Larson
Radar Man 2nd Class (RD2 – E5)

A brief look at a portion of Fred’s service aboard the USS Everett F. Larson:
After a short period on "Yankee Station", Larson spent alternate periods on patrol and in port at Kaohsiung and Keelung, Taiwan, until 15 September when the ship left Kaohsiung as a typhoon came roaring in and headed back to "Yankee Station". As soon as it arrived, they were ordered to participate in operation "Silver Skate" and did so from 22 to 27 September. At the completion of this exercise, Larson was ordered to gunfire support activities in South Vietnam. On 1 October, Larson pulled into Da Nang Harbor and began the gunfire support activities, which would last until 6 October. During this period, Larson fired 656 rounds of five-inch 38-caliber ammunition, and killed or wounded 63 Viet Cong soldiers. In addition, she also destroyed 62 structures, and numerous roads and trenches.

Fred passed away on Sunday April 3, 2022. He was a loving Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather. He will be dearly missed by all of his family and friends.

There will be a Navy Honor Guard present at the cemetery as well.
