Comments: It seems the only ships listed under MSTS are transports. There were oilers also such as the USS Aucilla AO 56 that delivered oil to many ports of the world and supplied the fleet in Korea by transporting oil fromt he Persian Gulf to Japan and the fleet. It was a ship that never stopped. I was proud to be part of her crew. She returned to the fleet in 1951 after years of service to MSTS.

Comments: I found a menu from the Captain's Dinner, December 20, 1953 from the USN S. Gen R.L. Howze. It was in my father's papers. His name was James Leonard Osborne. He served in Korea in 53-54. I believe his rank at that time was CWO3. Was wondering if anyone might have been on the ship at that time and might have known him. He retired in 1956 from Camp LeJuene.

Just as a side note, my husband and I were stationed in Korea in 76-79 and my father came to visit and was honored by the Korean Veterans (a general) with medals and gifts. You would have thought he won the war by himself.

Comments: I'm trying to find my biological father. In 1965 my
mother was on the ship USS GEN. Wm Mitchell TAP-114 for
2 weeks from California going to Okinawa, and met this
man. She said he was a Lt. although the picture was
taken at his boot camp so there is no rank yet. She
said that his name was Tom Brown. (not sure if she was
being honest about his name) and that he had no idea,
she ended up pregnant as a result of their..."meeting".
I am now 45 and wanting to connect with him. One of my
daughters looks just like him. My moms (recently
deceased) name was Deloris Snyder. Please if anyone
knows him or can guide me to a better way to go about
finding him, let me know. My email is

Comments: AP-114. General William Mitchell. I am looking for the ships logbook. I am particularly interested in the time period January 1, 1949, to December 31, 1954. My now deceased brother in law was a USMC who was stationed on Guam when the Korean War began. June 25, 1950.

He had come to Guam by ship from San Francisco. He was then transported by ship to South Korea. Wounded, he was later returned to the US via ship.

I know one of those trips was made on the USS General William Mitchell. My surviving sister and his surviving children would like to know this information. Can anyone direct me to a site where I could find the ships record of movement? Thank You. Don White, Jacksonville, FL

We broke down again near Japan but were able to limp into port in Inchon. The captain died on the voyage and was stored in the deep freeze. All in all, quite an adventure for an eight year old boy.

Comments: My fathers active duty was in the early 1950's. He came home in 1955. He left Japan on April 1st (His Birthday)went through Formosa and Okinawa then back to San Fran. He caught a ride with a few fellows to Los Angles then caught a bus back to PHX, Arizona. He then caught another bus to Winslow then caught a ride with the mail man back to the Navajo Rez.to Teesto. From there he waked about 10 miles to his mothers house up on the mountain. Big suprise for everyone in the family that day. My father later reinlisted in the Army agin a few years later due to the lack of jobs. He was later discharged in 1959. He lost a toe to frostbite in Germany. He was a guard at a prison for one of Hitlers men, I do not remember his name. When my father was discharged it was because of T.B. in the leg, the non infectious kind. If you remember my father please contact us, or if you have any memories to share. A Daughter of an Army Vet. Thank you and Have a Great Life.

Keywords: THE USNS BALLOU SAILED FROM INCHON TO SEATTLE NON-STOP IN MAY/JUNE OF 1953; I'D LOVE TO HAVE THE DATES OF SAILING AND WHEN WE ARRIVED IN SEATTLE. WE CAME INTO THE HARBOR IN THE EVENING AND IT LOOKED A LOT LIKE INCHON--IT WAS HARD TO BELIEVE WE WERE BACK HOME. WERE YOU THERE? DO YOU RECALL THE DATES? I'D LOVE TO KNOW.
