USS Underhill (DE-682), 1943-1945

USS Underhill, a 1400-ton Buckley class destroyer escort built at Quincy, Massachusetts, was commissioned in November 1943. She served in the Atlantic as a convoy escort and training support ship until February 1945, when she was sent to the Pacific. On 24 July 1945, while escorting a troop convoy from Okinawa to Leyte, Underhill was sunk by a Japanese kaiten manned torpedo. Nearly half of her crew were lost with the ship.
