Archives: USS Sentry - Another logbook identified

Andre pulled an identification for this one out of his hat, going by
memory with only the number of the ship written on the cover of the
logbook.

USS Sentry (AM-299) Medical Logbook
2011.0002
Organizational records
1944-1945

1 logbook covering October 1944-September 1945. From Wikipedia: ""USS
Sentry (AM-299) was an Admirable-class minesweeper built for the United
States Navy during World War II. She served in the Pacific Ocean and was
awarded six battle stars, a Navy Unit Commendation, and a Presidential
Unit Citation. She was decommissioned and placed in reserve in 1946. In
August 1962, the former Sentry was transferred to South Vietnam as RVNS
Ky Hoa (HQ-09) in the Republic of Vietnam Navy. Her fate after 1962 is
unreported in secondary sources."
