but  has many Links to some really great Historical Info on WWII US Naval Battles:

BLUE WATER NAVY, which has a link listed above, is a very comprehensive website dedicated to
providing information those who may have been exposed to Agent Orange, which includes Hector Sailors.
On their site, they have a U.S. Government Document containing a list of Navy and Coast Guard Ships
associated with service in Vietnam and exposure to Herbicide Agents.  Hector and Ajax are named on this list (page 11),
and may be helpful if you need to make a claim for benefits due to Agent Orange exposure.
You may go directly to the List of Ships on their website by clicking HERE

If you would like "to go back in time" and check our website's evolution
click here and type in and click on the links you're brought to.You can do the same with any of your favorite websites.
ATTENTION: We are no longer accepting or answering requests to have links added to this page
that are NOT directly Military related in nature, such as Health, PTSD, Drug Addiction, Legal help, etc
This small sampling below covering those websites should be adequate to show our Shipmates that there are MANY such resources on the web.
I encourage our Shipmates to find more such sites in your area by using their favorite search engine, such as Yahoo, Google, MSN, etc.
The websites listed here HAVE NOT been checked out, NOR approved and are NOT endorsed by the Association.
I often get 2 or MORE such requests weekly, and, having been Webmaster 18+ years
I could easily fill a page with a list of such websites (do the Math).
That said, please don't expect me to keep responding to such requests.
Sincerely...the USS Hector Association Webmaster
