USS Shipley Bay Home      

This site is dedicated to the USS Shipley Bay (CVE-85) Casablanca Class Escort Carrier including attached composite Squadron VC-97 and everyone else associated with her during World War II.  In recognition and appreciation for those Americans who helped build this great warship, served onboard or flew from her deck, we are grateful!

Contributions to this site have been made by sailors, airmen, historians and veteran family members.  Items from their collections are a tribute to the USS Shipley Bay history and all of those who participated in the World War II effort.  Support for this site comes from those USS Shipley Bay Contributors dedicated to preserving this unique part of our American history.
