Welcome Aboard

The third ship to bear this proud name, 
she was Commissioned in October,1944 
and was decommissioned 11 months later 
after being attacked by a swarm of  
Japanese kamikaze aircraft.  
Although she shot down  most of her attackers, 
she took direct hits from 6 planes and two bombs.

This site is dedicated to her crew,
the Aaron Warriors
and especially my uncle
Willis Milton Guyer
 We are anxious to preserve the history
 and the identity of the USS AARON WARD 
and her crew.
Please contact us if you
have suggestions, or anything to add.
