WWII US Navy FC2 White Jumper USS Wesson (DE 184)
Here is another great US Navy undress white jumper belonging to a FC2 who served on the destroyer USS Wesson (DE 184) from 1942 through 1945. As destroyers go this was a hard fighting ship, from capturing IJN Cutters, the Philippines and Iwo Jima invasions and surviving a Kamikaze attack, and Japanese Occupation, this little ship seemed to have done it all and this sailor was a part of his ships story during the entire war. A wonderful Navy Jumper that tells a story!
