USS Inca (IX-229) and USS LST-823
Aground in Buckner Bay, Okinawa, after being stricken from the Navy List in early 1946 and before their removal by scrappers circa the late 1940s or early 1950s.
Inca served under this name and number into January 1946, when local authorities learned that she had been redesignated USS Gamage (IX-227) in August 1945. The hull number barely visible on her bow is probably IX-229.
