Welcome USS Conway's Logbook



Comments:
Med. officer on USS Conway from July, '45 'til April, '46. T%he Eaton and Squalus also were in our division. Lt.Com Harrington was the captain, Lt. Starr was Exec. and Lt Humphries was the Engineer. All were capable and likeable officers. I'm now 88 yrs. old but remember quite a lot about my tour on the Conway.

My grandfather, Charles B. Wheeler served on the Conway sometime in the 40's (I believe). He passed away in '97. I'm trying to gather some info to put together a book about the Conway and his time serving on her for my grandma, Roberta "Bobbie" Wheeler and the rest of my family. My grandpa never really talked about his time in the service, I only heard a few stories from a friend that worked with him. If anyone has any info I would really appreciate it!

My dad listed on ship roster Tim McCoy served on USS Conway during WWII. He spoke little of war but told about different places he had been. Any shipmates who may know of him ,i would love to hear some stories. He passed away in June 2001. He was a torpedoman 2nd class TM2. I believe he served around 1943-1945. He loved the Navy-i still root for them in the Army-Navy game. Any info or stories would be helpful.

I am the daughter of George W. Merck who served on the Conway in WW2. Although we watched Victory at Sea in the 60's on tv it is now more important for me to understand what this service entailed. My father died in 1984 of cancer, however my mother Betty is living and 90 years old.

I send his shipmates my best wishes and gratitude for your terrible brave service.

Best wishes, Josie Merck

I served on the USS Conway from 1962-64. Cuban Blockade, two Med cruises, the icing incident off Martha's Vinyard and many ASW runs off the N.C. Coast and the Carribean. I was seperated after the the Med trip that included the Suez Canal and Persian Gulf. I was an ET3 and have many fond memories of the guys I served with and the USS Conway DD-507.
