USS Moore DE 240


"This photo was taken while the Moore was on Atlantic duty. I am unsure of the date. The camouflage painting was distinctive to the Atlantic.

I was a fortunate young man and was assigned to the Moore after training schools and reported aboard in April, 1945. I was Quartermaster striker and attained 3rd class before discharge. The Moore was reoutfitted for Pacific duty and arrived at Pearl Harbor just about 2 weeks before the war was totally concluded.

The ship was assigned to search and rescue along the island route to Japan. Common term was "bird-dog duty". Then we were sent to China as part of the occupation and peacekeeping. The Moore finally was sent back home for mothballing on the east coast. I again made the journey in reverse."
