The SS Alexander Majors.....a "Liberty Ship" that took her 'hard knocks' in Dulag Harbor, Leyte in the Philippines.....
She even lost two of her crew...but she was patched up...and sent on her way, and she continued to serve...in fact she was not "broken up" until February 1972....in the mean time she was sold to the Italian government...and was renamed "Trieste"
Well if you'd care to read a short clip about this event and what happened...just click on the following 'link' to go to my... Bud's Liberty & Merchant Ship Histories. Look her up in the "A's" section
There is some mighty interesting stories about these ole girls that wandered the seas of this era.
Hope you enjoy!!
