Commander Frederick Julian Becton, USN
This picture was taken sometime after 21 November 1946 (the date members of the crew were notified that their ship had received the Presidential Unit Citation)
Note that Cmdr. Becton has 2 stars in his PUC ribbon - the second star for action on Radar Picket Station #1. Location of the photograph is unknown, but the background appears to be a gun mount.
