  1. May Father took this ship, the US Marine Shark (he called it a troopship) to the Philippines from Pittsburgh, CA in Dec 1945 to start his service in the Air Force. He said it took about 2 weeks and eventually landed in Manilla. Sadly he just passed away a few weeks ago at 93, so I don’t have much or info from him that I can provide. I’m doing research for his eulogy and found on Wikipedia this: “SS Marine Shark – Sold private 1968 renamed Charleston converted to container ship, later scrapped.”


  2. I was on that ship with my two brothers and parents. Fifty years later I met some others in Houston TX. that were on that same ship
