We are seeking information on the USS Gantner and her crews. Files and photos may be emailed to us and we will incorporate them into this page. When enough information has been assembled we will then build the ship her own section.

The E-Mail:


I was 7 when WW II started and about 11 when it ended. I had a relative who I think was on the USS Gantner. I remember the strict “loose lips sinks ships” admonishments from my parents so no one ever talked about the name of the ship outside family. Is there a crew list for this ship ? His name was Harold Lewis from Akron, Ohio
