A story of the USS Northampton and her crew.

“I watched the Tassafaronga, I bet that took some time to put together....very well done.!”
Mitchell Griffith

“I watched your movie. It is fantastic, adventuresome, tragic, beautiful. Took me back aboard. Wish it could play on some TV station, it would make people think. My hat is off to you for a fantastic video.”
Sherman Walgren

“This was very touching. I grew up hearing about the USS North Hampton. Sherman Walgren is my favorite and very special uncle. The beautiful quilt of our sail easy is amazing. Although I have not met you , I know that you are a very special person. Thanks for keeping the memories of the North Hampton alive.”
Becki Fruth RN - AKA Princess Becki (to Uncle Sherm)
