We are especially fortunate
to have the Davis Collection photos and information. Besides being from
the namesake family, George E. Davis, it is likely that nobody else has
this information! The gratitude of all the shipmates of the USS George E.
Davis DE357 goes to the surviving family of George Elliott Davis Jr.
