The PCE (R) 850 was hit in her 3 in. ammunition ready box. Killed 2, wounded 8. Dempsey was transferred to ‘Mercy.’ Doc says he won’t live much longer. Getting little sleep & even less time to cook & eat. I stay half drunk on coffee. Cheese & bacon sandwiches. More fleet in today. Some cripple. That’s the high points, too tired for details. Don’t ever be so silly as to ask me, “Didn’t you get scared?”

Reply to FamilyPhysician's Post: i found this info but we realy dont know what the end results of the ship was also if any crew can be contacted and what the ship did

Several of these had contact information - I did not personally try to contact these - because I thought that you would be better able to directly ask the specific questions of those people than having me relay questions and answers.

Did you try the contact information provided in these links? Were they still valid contact info?

I just found a site that listed the last reunion for the USS Fairview - last September with contact information - Hopefully that would be current
