From: Detroit, Michigan
Comments: I was scanning my fathers WWII letters to my mother into my computer when I noticed something exciting. Below the date on the letter (Nov.10 1945) he wrote "East China - Yellow Sea" LST 794. He was enroute to Korea from Okinawa when he wrote the letter. I was very happy to find so much info on LST 794! Now I know a little bit about the ship he was on and have photo's of it. In his letter he writes how sick he felt from the rough seas...he was Army, not Coast Gaurd or Navy. Thanks to all the crew for getting him to Jinsen safely!

Comments: Great website! My Dad was on an LST during WWII and involved in the Battle of Leyte. I would like to find out more about his experiences. He died in 1978, and never said much about the war. My husband served in the U.S. Coast Guard during the Vietnam Era, and was surprised by your website seeing Coast Guard personnel on an LST. Was this unusual during WWII? Thank you for the info.
