ABF3 Dwayne Williams, USN

On Friday, May 23, 2003 ABF3 Dwayne Williams fell over the side while chasing a football. The ship immediately reversed course in an effort to save him, but despite an extensive search by small boats, other ships in company and the ship's Search and Rescue helicopters which lasted until almost dark, he was never found.

I would love to have a scanned image of Dwayne's obituary, or at least a link to it. If you can help, please contact me.

Dwayne has a Memorial headstone in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.

Plot: Memorial Section H Site 84
