         The " U.S.S. Abner Read ( DD-526 ) " was a Fletcher-class destroyer of the United States Navy named for " Lt. Commander Abner Read " who served in the American Civil War.

The " U.S.S. Abner Read ( DD-526 ) "

Strikes A Mine

         The " U.S.S. Abner Read ( DD-526 ) ", at 01.50 hours on August 18, 1943, while patroling off Kiska Island in the Aluetian Islands struck a Japanese mine with the stern of the ship.   This set off the ship's smoke screen generator, which began to pour toxic smoke over the stern.   Men sleeping in the aft compartments suffered from smoke inhalation.   In the darkness, a few men fell through holes in the deck into fuel oil tanks below.

         The stern broke away and sank and about 90 men either went down with the stern or ended up in the water, which was covered with fuel oil.   About 20 men were pulled from the water, as was the body of a dead crewman. The destroyer lost 2 crewman who were " Killed In Action ", 69 crewmen were " Missing In Action " and 47 of the crew were " wounded ".
