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!

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.

our American history.
