Our World War II veterans have many untold stories.
We are working to preserve, document and bring some of those stories
to you. The USS Shipley Bay (CVE-85) and Air Squadron (VC-97)
website is dedicated to the heroic American men and women who
contributed to the World War II struggle and ultimate victory. We
have a clear and focused mission to share the complete history of
this Escort Aircraft Carrier and her attached fighter - bomber
The USS Shipley Bay website was launched in 2009. We have been able
to digitize and publish some of the veteran stories but have many
more to process and publish. Our contributors have provided us with
artifacts, photographs, videos, books, models and their individual
stories. Visit our website to see what we have accomplished so far.
We are looking for donations to upgrade computers, scanners, image
conversion tools and software. We are also looking at ways to give
back to our community. We will donate 10% of all funds to a new USS
Shipley Bay Memorial Scholarship Fund and 10% to The
Telecommunications History Group (THG) 501c3. Visit our website
periodically to see what your donation is actually accomplishing.
Please help us preserve this chapter of American history!
