ROBERT YERED WPC 1104
Ship Name and Designation History
This section lists the names and designations that the ship had during its lifetime. The list is in chronological order.
Keel Laid - Launched 4 October 2012
This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).
Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.
- Covers Page 1 (DATE RANGE)
This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Within each set, the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of earliest known usage.
A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an
image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN
THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the existing example.

NAMESAKE - Engineman Robert J. Yered, USCG. Yered was a member of the explosive loading detail at the United States Army Terminal, Cat Lai, Vietnam. On the morning of Feb.18, 1968, the terminal was attacked by enemy rocket, mortar and small arms fire. With the terminal on fire and barges dangerously close to exploding, Yered courageously exposed himself to enemy gunfire as he helped extinguish fires. His bravery averted not only the destruction of his own ship but also that of the entire terminal. Yered was awarded a Silver Star by the U.S. Army for his heroism. Among his other awards are the Vietnam Service Medal with four bronze stars and a Purple Heart Medal.
