Was searching on Wikipedia for my last name, and I ran across a link listing a WW2 Destroyer Escort named the USS Weeden. Thought that was interesting but saw that it had no article. After some research (into both the ship and into how to write a brand new Wikipedia article) I am happy to unveil my USS Weeden article.
All info taken from the 2 links at the bottom of the article. I also emailed the people who run the USS Weeden veteran's website to let them now that they now have their own article!
Very proud to have contributed something, and hope to expand on it soon, and maybe find how I may be related to the USS Weeden's namesake.
