Commanding Officers of USS Missouri?
Is there a list any place that shows all the commanders (captains) of the USS Missouri?
Although I was unable to find a list of all the Commanding Officers of USS Missouri, here is a reasonable list for you that I developed from the nternet, but I do not claim that it is complete.
Missouri commissioned on the 11th. of June 1944 and her first CO was:
The Battleship decommissioned 26th. February 1955, and was in reserve for 30 years to be recommissioned on the 10th. of May 1986.
Her last CO was Captain Albert L. Kaiss.
Her second decommissioning 31st. of March 1992.
Donated to the Missouri Memorial Association on the 4th. of May 1998.
The Mighty Mo is secured alongside Ford Island Honolulu, and was the venue for the 60th. anniversary of the signing of the Japanese Surrender in Tokyo Bay on Sunday the 2nd. of September 1945, at that time I was a Lieutenant RAN, serving in HMAS Shropshire also present in Tokyo Bay for the surrender. On September 2nd. 2005, I was a guest on board USS Missouri for the 60th. anniversary.
Hope this helps a little.
Further to my earlier email, here is a complete list of Missouri Captains courtesy of the Secretary for the Missouri Association.
