USS McNair (DD-679) in 32/3D taken from USS New Mexico (BB-40) on June 12, 1944. This photo shows part of the fleet assembling to depart for the invasion of Saipan. Behind McNair is a Cleveland class light cruiser in Measure 22. Further back is an escort carrier in Design 12A (probably USS Copahee CVE-12) Photo source: NARA 80-G-309725.
USS McNair (DD-679) is seen again from New Mexico on June 12, 1944. Behind McNair is USS Honolulu (CL-48) in camouflage 32/2C. Photo source: NARA 80-G-253679.
USS McNair (DD-679) is viewed from the port bow while approaching USS Saratoga (CV-3) wearing camouflage 32/3D. The colors appear to be light gray, ocean gray and dull black with much of the paint on this side apparently damaged and seared probably by fire. On the night of February 21, 1945, Saratoga was attacked and heavily damaged by kamikazes off Iwo Jima while being escorted by McNair and two other destroyers. McNair then aided the stricken carrier and was probably burned at that time even though her history does not report damage. Saratoga was then ordered to Eniwetok escorted by McNair for temporary repairs and then to the west coast while McNair returned. The caption of this photo states that it was received on April 4, 1945, so it was probaly taken after February 21 while McNair was escorting to Eniwetok. Photo source: NARA 80-G-311059.
McNair is seen again from the port stern while refueling from USS Saratoga (CV-3). This photo was marked as received in Washington on April 7, 1945, so we don't know if this was the same day as the previous photo. Photo source: NARA 80-G-311076.
