    Thanks for posting. My late father was on an Escort Carrier in WWII. Found the ship he was on.

    Nice link! My uncle (USNA Class of 45) was aboard a sub (can't remember the name) in the waning days of WW-II, serving in the Pacific. Broke his back and was medically discharged. Loved the Navy, but got screwed for the disability. Lived the rest of his life in civilian employ (mostly Lord and Taylor) and in a fair amount of pain he tried to hide (only sometimes successfully). I'll come up with the name of his sub, but am at a loss for now...

    My Dad (and his company) deployed to N. Africa in 1942 on the USS (USNS?) Elizabeth C. Stanton. Not a crew member, but a passenger along with his 1,300+ company contingent. Several AA drills and torpedo drills enroute.

    When I was a port operations officer in the Azores (late '86 to mid '8 our three Army tugs were vintage tugs of the same class as the Navy's YTBs. Army crews, ancient tugs (and mariners for the technology). Great soldiers, operating ancient watercraft, to perform missions well beyond their tugs' capabilities.

    Heroes all, though, who did the impossible with ancient tools not up to the task. But somehow, they made i sort of work!

    Thanks for the links!

    My Dad was on a sub chaser in pacific WW2. In 1980 I had to make a trip to Norfolk to get my Bro and baggage who was getting discharge. Bro took me to a dock and showed me a coast guard cutter. It was the ship dad served on in pacific WW2. All painted up and stripped of all the anti sub weapons. OD gave me short tour and showed me the name plate.

    I posted about this site many moons ago, thanks for bringing it back up, my ships are all gone except the last one, that's a museum in lake Charles Louisiana.
    The USS Orleck DD-886 was awarded top Gun, during Vietnam War. Fired more 5" 38 shells than any other destroyer.
