My younger brother gifted me with this publication.. which he found at a flea market. While the people at Dravo justifiably should be proud of their efforts, the photo on the cover also highlights Evansville.. the LST 125 is in the photo taken at Leyte! (10th from the left)



Do any of you remember a publication from the Evansville yards similar to this one? I have a copy of a booklet issued by the shipyard in Evansville, but it's not a newsletter.

Here's a look at the May 1945 edition of the Invader. Notice the stains in the upper left hand corner. My guess this is muddy water from the Ohio River.
