    History Fred Schroeder’s Eulogy
    7 July 2008

    How does one sum up a person’s life in five minutes? You need only to look around here to see the love everyone had for Fred.
    I’ve known Fred for a full two-thirds of my life. He had become as much of a father to me as my own father. He tolerated my boyhood shenanigans and practical jokes and still let me steal his daughter from him.
    He loved family! How could he not? His mother was one of twenty-three children and he was one of about 18,000 cousins. Family reunions were practically synonymous with taking the Federal census. So with his own family, guess what he loved to do? He dearly loved and enjoyed any kind of a family get together, be it large or small.
    It was precisely this love of family that attracted me to this man. He didn’t just talk empty words; no — he got involved with everyone’s life and took an active interest in what they were doing.
    He modeled what a strong, Christian father should be like so well that his children, his grandchildren and his great grandchildren all have the deepest love and respect for him. We are all closer to God in our Christian walks because of this man.
    Just as this one church can make a difference in our nation, as Pastor Chris preached yesterday, so has this man made a difference in hundreds of people’s lives about him, but especially to his family.
    Thank you Dad — God has blessed your life greatly. Be at peace and enjoy the rewards of a race well run.

    Fred served on both the PCE 871 (Patrol Craft Escort) and the DE 177 (Destroyer Escort). His first muster on board the PCE 871 was 29 Oct 1943. His second muster when transferred to the Reybold (DE 177) was 9 May 1944. On 25 Apr 1945 he transferred to the just built troop transport ship, USS Cook (APD-130).

    Reybold (DE 177 [Destroyer Escort Class])
     
    John Keane Reybold, born at Delaware City, Delaware, 11 January 1903, was appointed midshipman 13 July 1922 and commissioned ensign on 3 June 1926. Having served in various ships including Idaho (BB-42), Utah (BB-31), Simpson (DD-221) (on the Asiatic Station), and Omaha (CL-4), he assumed command of Cowell (DD-167), on 17 June 1940. Detached on 23 September, he briefly commanded Claxton (DD-140) and on 31 October assumed command of Dickerson (DD-157). Commissioned lieutenant commander on 1 January 1941, he commanded Dickerson on Neutrality Patrol and, after December 1941, on coastal patrol and Icelandic convoy escort duty until 19 March 1942. On that date, Dickerson, enroute to Norfolk, was fired on by a nervous merchantman, SS Liberator. Liberator's shells hit the destroyer's charthouse, killing Lt. Comdr. Reybold and three others.

    (DE - 177: displacement 1,900 (full load); length 306’; beam 36’10”; draft 11’8”; speed 21 knots; complement 208; armament 3 3”, 2 40mm., 8 20mm., 3 21” torpedo tubes, 2 depth charge tracks, 8 depth charge projectors, 1 depth charge projector (hedgehog-type); class Cannon)
     
    DE-177 was laid down on 3 May 1943 by the Federal Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co., Port Newark, N.J.; launched as Reybold (DE-177) on 22 August 1943; sponsored by Mrs. John K. Reybold, widow of Lt. Comdr. John K. Reybold; and commissioned on 29 September 1943, Lt. Comdr. A. B. Bradley, Jr., in command.
     
    Following shakedown off Bermuda, Reybold operated briefly under ComSubLant, then completed an escort run from Rhode Island to the Canal Zone. She then steamed to Norfolk before the end of 1943 and, on 2 January 1944, she sailed south to join the 4th Fleet. On the 15th, she arrived at Recife, Brazil, whence she escorted ships to Trinidad and back until July, interrupting that duty only for air/sea rescue operations at the end of May. In July, she guarded the sealanes between Brazil and Gibraltar, anchoring off the latter 13-15 July and returning to Recife on the 23rd to prepare for transfer to the Brazilian Navy.
     
    Shifting to Natal on 9 August, Reybold was decommissioned and transferred under the terms of lend-lease to Brazil on 15 August 1944. Renamed Bauru, she continued operations under that name throughout the remainder of World War II and the 1940s. She was returned to the custody of the United States and transferred, permanently, under the terms of the military defense aid program, to Brazil on 30 June 1953. She served in the Brazilian Navy as Bauru (D-18) until 1973.

    Ships
    USS Cook (APD-130)
    USS Cook (APD-130)
    USS Cook (APD-130) was a Crosley-class high speed transport of the United States Navy, named after two brothers: Second Lieutenant Andrew F. Cook, Jr. (1920–1942) and Sergeant Dallas H. Cook (1921–1942). Both served in the Marine Corps, and both were awarded the Navy Cross, posthumously.
    Cook was laid down at the Defoe Shipbuilding Company in Bay City, Michigan on 7 May 1944 and partially completed as a Rudderow-class destroyer escort with the hull number DE-714. A month before launching, on 17 July 1944, it was decided that Cook would be completed as a high-speed transport, with the designation APD-130. She was launched on 26 August 1944, sponsored by Mrs. A. F. Cook, mother of Second Lieutenant Cook and Sergeant Cook. She was commissioned on 25 April 1945, at the Todd-Johnson Dry Dock Company in New Orleans, Louisiana, with Lieutenant Commander D. N. Hamilton, USNR, in command.

    Service History
    1945–1946
    Cook sailed from Norfolk, Virginia, on 19 June 1945 for San Diego, arriving there on 2 July for training. On 20 September, she arrived at Tokyo carrying men of the Underwater Demolition Teams. After transporting troops to Okinawa, Cook reconnoitered and landed UDT 20 at Hakodate, Hokkaid? before its occupation on 27 September. She sailed home from Yokohama by way of Guam, Eniwetok, and Pearl Harbor, to San Diego, arriving there in 13 November. After repairs, she spent the month of January transporting troops along the west coast. Cook was placed out of commission in reserve on 31 May 1946, berthed at San Diego.

    1953–1969
    Cook was recommissioned on 6 October 1953, and took part in training and landing exercises off San Diego. She entered Mare Island Naval Shipyard for conversion to an APD flagship between 28 November 1953 and 15 March 1954, and continued training operations out of San Diego until 19 November, when she sailed for the Far East. After participating in amphibious exercises on the west coast of Korea, she operated from 21 January 1955 to 19 May as flagship for "Operation Passage to Freedom", the evacuation of refugees from North Vietnam.
    Cook returned to San Diego on 12 June 1955, and sailed in various landing and training exercises as primary control vessel or anti-submarine ship. In November, she joined in a combined amphibious operation with Canadian forces. Local operations off California, including a period of service as a submarine target vessel, continued until 21 March 1956, when she sailed to Kauai, Hawaii, for an amphibious exercise in which she served as control vessel.
    Cook returned to San Diego on 23 April 1956 for maintenance anti-submarine exercises, and public orientation cruises, until 22 August 1957, when she departed for a tour of duty in the western Pacific based at Yokosuka. She stood by off Borneo during the Indonesian crisis from 14 to 22 December. Back home in San Diego on 10 April 1958, Cook participated in operations along the west coast, including major interservice exercises, and between 13 October 1959 and 29 April 1960 cruised in the Far East once more. Returning to the United States, Cook operated along the west coast for the remainder of 1960.
    Cook made three cruises to Vietnam between 1966 and 1969, carrying underwater demolition teams.
    Cook was struck from the Naval Vessel Register on 15 November 1969, and sold for scrapping on 24 July 1970, to National Metal and Steel Corporation, Terminal Island, California.
    USS Reybold (DE-177).jpg
    USS Reybold (DE-177).jpg
    USS Reybold (DE-177) was a Cannon-class destroyer escort built for the United States Navy during World War II. She served in the Atlantic Ocean and provided escort service against submarine and air attack for Navy vessels and convoys.
    Reybold was named in honor of John Keane Reybold who was killed by friendly fire during a convoy run. The ship was laid down on 3 May 1943 by the Federal Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co., Port Newark, New Jersey; launched on 22 August 1943; sponsored by Mrs. John K. Reybold, widow of Lt. Comdr. John K. Reybold; and commissioned on 29 September 1943, Lt. Comdr. A. B. Bradley, Jr., in command.

    World War II Atlantic Ocean Operations
    Following shakedown off Bermuda, Reybold operated briefly under ComSubLant, then completed an escort run from Rhode Island to the Panama Canal Zone. She then steamed to Norfolk, Virginia, before the end of 1943 and, on 2 January 1944, she sailed south to join the U.S. 4th Fleet. On the 15th, she arrived at Recife, Brazil, whence she escorted ships to Trinidad and back until July, interrupting that duty only for air/sea rescue operations at the end of May. In July, she guarded the sealanes between Brazil and Gibraltar, anchoring off the latter 13–15 July and returning to Recife on the 23rd to prepare for transfer to the Brazilian Navy.

    Decommissioning
    Shifting to Natal, Brazil, on 9 August, Reybold was decommissioned and transferred under the terms of lend-lease to Brazil on 15 August 1944. Renamed Bracuí, she continued operations under that name throughout the remainder of World War II and the 1940s. She was returned to the custody of the United States and transferred, permanently, under the terms of the military defense aid program, to Brazil on 30 June 1953. She served in the Brazilian Navy as Bracuí until 11 July 1972.
