    US Naval Forces assigned to Invasion of Japan in WW2

    Friends and I were discussing this potential event over dinner. His dad was going to be on a LST with the initial wave of troops; mine was on an DE escorting those ships. Question is; are there any published reports on the US Naval Task Organizations listing all the ships that were to be assigned to Operation Olympic?

    I have researched this on Google and found no luck

    Take a look at this link and the various sub-links. It might give you some idea of what was where.

    Do you know which unit your friend's dad was attached to and what DE your father was on?
