USS BEGOR (APD-127) shipmates and other interested parties are invited
to send our Webmaster links to other Web sites that may be of interest
to those who visit our site.
The categories of links we offer for your use are:
- BEGOR-related sites—These mention USS BEGOR or former
crewmembers or operations that BEGOR participated in.
- Non-USS BEGOR-related sites—These provide good material
for research or entertainment relating to naval amphibious
operations or they cover wars, battles and campaigns which
shipmates are likely to have an interest in, based on their own
service, such as WWII, the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
- Quality of Life (QOL) sites—These provide information useful
to retired military members.
USS BEGOR-related Sites:
Russ W. Machen, RD3 (Surface Warfare), USN, served aboard USS
BEGOR from 9-52 to 9-55. Three of his many web sites have

in. He even lists links that provide avenues to still more
BEGOR information. Through his site alone, one can view many
sites that mention BEGOR, as he provides links to search engines
on whose home page one can enter "USS BEGOR (APD-127)"

Separately from his web sites, Russ Machen has provided excellent

Quality of Life (QOL) Sites:
Probably the best site in this category (first link on our list
below) was launched by the Secretary of the Navy's Retiree
Council in March, 2004. It is so comprehensive and contains
so many links to other good sites that any other site we list in
this category can probably be reached through it, making the site
exactly what the Council intended: a "one-stop shop for
military retiree information."
