We are seeking information on the USS Hoel and her crews. Files and photos may be E-mailed to us and we will incorporate them into these pages.


The E-mail:

4/30/06:

I have an original oil painting “TAFFY THREE” showing the DD-533 and the CVE-73.

The colors are much better than my photo. The painting is 2’ x 4’.

You can use the photo in your displays.
