Dodging Salvos at Battle of Leyte Gulf

Webmaster note:  This photo from Mr. Touzell is labeled "Dodging Salvos" and the ship is making smoke.
The photo was taken during the Battle of Leyte Gulf - Battle off Samar.   It is one of many from the collection of USS DENNIS DE 405 photos.

Comparing this photo with others taken at this time and based upon the camoflage pattern of the ship, it is my belief that this is a photo of either USS SAMUEL B. ROBERTS DE 413 or USS HOEL.
