HPRA WEB SITE INFORMATION...

    HUGHPURVIS.COM and DD709.COM are the two WEB addresses the Hugh Purvis Reunion Association traditionally uses to provide you with all kinds of information.  Using either  address will take you to our real home page, HughPurvis.com. Use it and have fun with it. (We actually own all of the (DD709 and Hughpurvis) ".com", ".org" and ".net" versions.  All will redirect to the main Hughpurvis.com page. This is so no one else can use them for their own site.

    The webmaster, as the developer of websites are usually called, is always open  to suggestions and comments. Each page will have a link at the bottom for you to send email  with your comments, suggestions or concerns. Items shown below that are bold and underlined are links to somewhere or something.  There are also one or more small "ships patch's"  on most pages. Clicking the patch will send you back to the previous page. The one on the home page will send you to the top of the page. The ships patch within the top "big" logo will also send you back to the home page from any other page. There are also "little blue up arrows" on some pages (like this page). Selecting one takes you back to the top of the page. There also mey be a "Menu" in a box on the right side of a page which will take you to the spot on the page the topic is located.

    There are links on the home page to request the Shipmate Directory and Newsletters (only a modified version is presented on this site). The links will bring up an email request form to the HPRA president.  (These items are no longer available on the Yahoo Group.)

    Some  items you will see, like the "Membership Form", the modified  "Newsletter" etc. are in "PDF" format.  Your computer will need to have a PDF reader, like "Adobe Reader " or similar software  installed in order to access them.  If you do not have a reader installed, you can get one from here - "ADOBE READER". This will provide you with the latest version. It is sometimes installed in conjunction with other software.  PDF's on this site should open in a new browser window or tab, depending how your browser is set to handle the request, and will not have a "return to previous page" button (like the ones you see below).

    The Hugh Purvis web site is open to the WWW and is updated often to reflect the latest information. As new information develops on future reunions or anything else important to you, it will appear on the site. If you have something you would like to see, let us know. Make the Hugh Purvis web site one of your favorites and check it often.  If you feel you would like to write something for the site, please do just that and we will make arrangements to present it. Also, please get the word out to anyone you think should know about us. Remember, this site is for you and is maintained by one of your shipmates.


COMMANDING OFFICER PROJECT...

    The Commanding Officers  page was last updated on 06/16/2011 using information from shipmates and the members of NavSource. We believe we have as correct a list as possible.  If you have anything to add, please address it to the webmaster. Among the missing are some dates and photos. There is a "Notes" page that you can get to from the NOTES column in the table. Clicking on some of items in there will bring up the Notes  page. (This project is considered completed.)


HPRA MEMBERSHIP...

    Membership in the HPRA is open to any former DD709 Hugh Purvis crew member. The membership  term is from January 1 to December 31. Annual dues are $20.00 and payable to the "Hugh Purvis Reunion Association" or "HPRA" in January.  A Lifetime membership is also available for a onetime payment, depending on your age. As per the changes made at the 2011 business meeting in D.C. ---
              • $200 (under 59)
              • $150 (age 60 – 69)
              • $100 (age 70 – 79)
              • $50   (age 80 and over)
   Membership forms are available in three formats; a PDF (electronic version), Microsoft Word and a Plain Text version. The PDF version has "fillable" entry areas and requires a "PDF Reader." You most likely have one installed on your computer device. The "fillable" feature requires the reader be up to date for it to work. Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is one good choice.
Any questions regarding the application process may be addressed via email to: The HPRA President  or to any of the HPRA officers listed on the   ►HPRA Officers◄ page.

HOW TO UPLOAD PHOTOS for the PHOTO GALLERY and Slide Show...

    One of the best ways to share your own photos is to have a free account of your own on one of the photo sharing sites.We actually use one or two for some of our photos. Here is a list of some good ones...

If you have a Yahoo account or Yahoo ID (Yahoo Group) you can sign in to Flickr with that. The same is true for Picasa if you have a Google account (gmail, googlemail). Consider using one of these sites and send us the link to the album you would like to add.

    If you do not have your own photo site, there are a several methods you can use to send photos for our "PICTURE GALLERY" and Slideshows and Albums.  If you have  only a few, you can email them to  the webmaster (link below).  This is good for up to 3 photos at a time. They are sent as attachments in your email.  The Help link in the email form explains how. You can also get the real email address from the latest HPRA directory. Look inside the cover page for it.
 
    If you have more than a few, we have another methods. A special account has been set up using the Google Picasa web site. Picasa is a free photo sharing site available to all. Anyone can get Google account for free. With Picasa, you get 15 gigabytes of space to use. Our Reunion Slide Show uses that site.  For this purpose, the site is...

  "www.picasaweb.google.com/hpradd709"

If you select the above link, you will be redirected to it and will see what is posted so far. In order to upload your photos, you will need the login (username) and password. For security reasons, that information will not be posted. All you need to do is send an email to  the webmaster (link below)  and the required information will be sent back to you, assuming  you are an HPRA member listed in the Shipmate Directory, active or inactive, or you can include some information to show that you were once stationed aboard the Hugh Purvis (any time - any rate - any rank).

    There is also a "You Tube" site for video purposes. Your videos can be uploaded in the same way as regular photos. They will be converted for web site use and be linked through the Video Page. You can also upload videos to a Flickr.com account if you have one. Use this only if the video is ready for viewing.

    If you only have a hard copy of your photos and cannot or do not want to scan them,  you can send them via US Mail  to me. If this is your choice, email the  webmaster and he will provide you his snail- mail address. Another good way to send photos or videos that are on your PC is to write them to a CD or DVD and mail that to me. Email the webmaster for my address if you do not know my name.
