Welcome To U.S.S. Caperton.info!

This site is dedicated to the the sailors of the WWII Destroyer DD-650 otherwise known as the USS Caperton. With the valuable assistance of many former sailors of the USS Caperton, I have assembled a site including information on the ship, its history, and the people who built and sailed her. There is also a growing photogallery of images of both the ship and her sailors. If you or a family member was involved in the USS Caperton, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to share your stories and/or photos with others. If you are a former sailor of the Caperton and are not already a member please check out the Association link for information about an association organized and operated by fellow former sailors. They even have a quarterly newsletter!
