"Veterans Information"


The Hugh Purvis Reunion Association (HPRA) charter is to plan and arrange reunions, assist our members in locating other shipmates and provide important information from the V.A. and other sources that you may need. Membership in the HPRA is granted to those men who served on the USS Hugh Purvis DD-709 in any year, for any length of time, in any rank or rate.

Membership information is available here...


(Update your information here)

Remember, the HPRA, this Web Site, the Shipmate Directory and the Newsletters are not possible without your financial support.

 *** Still Available! See here ***


   The HPRA newsletter is published quarterly and is sent to all ACTIVE members via Email or USPS. If you get your NL via email, it not only saves postage costs (high), but will also be in color for many of the photos. So please consider using this method. Newsletters are also available on the DD709 Yahoo Group if you are a Y!Group member. NL's dating back to 2006 are available. A modified version (Web Site Version below) is on this site. For a complete copy, use the "Complete Version ..." link below (Active members only). The August, 2015 issue covers the the upcoming "New Orleans Reunion" including registration and shirt order forms.

The latest Newsletter is AUGUST, 2015.
