Kenneth E. Whiting- Ship?
My father was on the Kenneth E. Whiting-Navy WWII-and I was wondering what kind of ship it was. I have been told that battleships carried the name of states,for instance,U.S.S. Mississippi,andso forth. What kind of ship carried the name of a person? My father had told me he carried men back and forth on a small craft to Islands( Pacific) then the end of the boat dropped down and the men exited.Thank you for reading this message. Diana
