Comments: Ahoy, I am a son-in-law of a WWII sailor who was the ship cook aboard the USS Duluth.
while researching his ship I came across the name USS Boxer.

i.e. From 14 December 1944 to 1 MARCH 1945 the following crews were trained aboard the USS DULUTH: USS DAYTON, USS AMSTERDAM, USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN, USS SAINT PAUL, USS BREMERTON, and USS BOXER.

I can provide a detailed ship history @26 Meg.

Thanks,

Wayne

Comments: This is in answer to Mary Lawson under "Sea School Marine." My name is Royce Peterson and I was with the Marine detachment on the Boxer 1948-51 at the same time your father, George Lawson and friend Roy Haley were there and knew them well. I found your message while searching for Boxer news for my son, also a marine who is to be stationed on the new Boxer(LHD-4). I have kept in close contact with Rudy Richard (college room mates later), and been intouch with Harry Cook and Ralph Polmiller. Would welcome any word from old Boxer friends.

Comments: My father, Edward James Rahberger, was aboard the USS Boxer in the Korean War and was an Aircraft Director. My best guess is that it was in the early 50's. He would have been 19 or 20 years old. I am trying to put together a "remembrance booklet" for his birthday and if you remember him or can tell me any stories I would appreciate it. I believe that the Commanding Officer, at that time, was Captain Dennis J. Sullivan of Warwick, NY.

“...July 1950 she made a record crossing of the Pacific...”


“.....she had nine men killed and two seriously injured in a fire which swept the hangar deck.”


With the outbreak of the Korean conflict she was pressed into service to carry planes to the fighting. During 14-22 July 1950 she made a record crossing of the Pacific, 8 1/2 days, with 150 Air Force and Navy planes and a thousand troops. On her return trip (27 July-4 August), she cut the record to 7 days, 10 hours, and 36 minutes.


After fast repairs she departed for the Far East 24 August, this time to join TF 77 in giving air support to the troops. Her planes supported the landing at Inchon (15 September 1950) and other ground action until November, when she departed for the west coast and overhaul.


Boxer departed San Diego for her second Korean tour 2 March 1951. Again she operated with TF 77 supporting the ground troops. She returned to San Francisco 24 October 1951.


Sailing 8 February 1952 for her third tour in Korea, Boxer again served with TF 77. During 23-24 June her planes took part in the heavy strikes against the North Korean hydro-electric complex and on 5 August she had nine men killed and two seriously injured in a fire which swept the hangar deck. After emergency repairs at Yokosuka, Japan (11-23 August), Boxer returned to duty off Korea. She arrived at San Francisco 25 September and underwent repairs until March 1953.


The carrier departed for the Far East 30 March 1953 and went into action a month later. She took part in the final actions of the Korean conflict and remained in Asiatic waters until November.


USS Boxer received eight battle stars for her service off Korea
