DD 597 (Fletcher class)
We are seeking information on the USS Wiley and her crews. Files and photos may be E-mailed to us and we will incorporate them into these pages.
My name is Howard Harold Davis. I was a crew member of the U.S.S. Wiley DD 597, from May 1945, until January 1946. I was a Seaman 1st Class and then Fireman 1st Class. I was on board for all it's service during WW11. We left Tsingtao ?, China, on December 13th, 1945, and arrived at Mare Island Naval amo dump, in San Francisco Bay, after Christmas. We were anchored in the Bay at Okinawa, the last night of the War, and were under attack from Jap Aircraft at 2:30 AM. I have written an article about the attack. If you would like a copy for the record, I'll be glad to send it to you.
