Ports of Call

These are the places the USS Rankin visited, or made landings at, or was otherwise connected with, from her launching in 1944 to her sinking in 1988. To learn more about these locations, click the flags or the place names below.

The list on this page comes from cruise books, photos, and personal recollections. A complete record appears in the USS Rankin Deck Logs on file at the National Archives at College Park, MD. We're looking for someone to finance a trip there, or to do the research themselves. It should take about a week. Let us know if you might help us with this project.
