We are seeking information on the USS Halligan and her crews.
Files and photos may be E-mailed to us and we will incorporate them into these pages.
I came across your site and was wondering if there is a site for an inquiry as to any survivors of the
USS Halligan still living at this time? My brother, Ernest J Phillips, was a radar/sonar man on that
destroyer and went down with his ship. I would like to see if there is anyone who might remember him
and might have a picture of him on the ship.
Thank you for any information you might supply.
