Reassigned to a new Design by the Bureau of Ships 6/10/44 memo to ComServPac that listed ships that had been reassigned from the 10/11/43 letter #0937.
This officially unidentified destroyer is probably USS Anderson (DD-411) supporting the invasion of Morotai on September 15, 1944 wearing 32/2C. Anderson was at the Morotai invasion along with USS Morris (DD-417) and reports indicate Anderson led the invasion fleet into the bay. This photo is cropped from larger photo showing both ships.
