The USS Underhill has been a part of our family’s fabric for many years. My father was in the 96th Infantry, the division that DE 682 was escorting back from Okinawa at the time of its sinking.. He landed on Okinawa on April 1, 1945 - Easter Sunday. He spoke often of the battle….it was terrible. 14,000 boys lost. My father’s name: Thomas Underhill. Strange fate of war.

My dad Ben Raboy was in the Navy and served at Fleet Hospital 114 in the Philippines in Oct 1945. I think he was a pharmacist mate. How can I find more info.? At the age of 65 he died in 1980.
Thank you!

In one of the Bull Horn (Underhill newspaper) it mentions that the Underhill had an orchestra. Does anyone know who was in this orchestra?

Greetings,






My name is Graeme Noseworthy. I am the Secretary of the Board of Directors & Historian at the Takodah YMCA in North Swanzey, NH.





I am currently heading up a project to research 12 young men that were lost in WW2.
They were all campers that attended our Camp in the 1920s, 30s, and/or
early 40s. One of them is named George F. Toomey and he served on-board the USS Underhill and was lost during her sinking.

I'd like to speak with members of his family or anyone else that remembers him.





I can be reached by email or on my mobile phone at 978-503-4030.





Thank you,


Graeme
