High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! USS Fillmore (APA-83)
was a Gilliam-class attack transport that served with the US Navy
during World War II. Commissioned late in the war, she was
initially assigned to transport duties and consequently did not
participate in combat operations. Fillmore was named after counties
in Minnesota and Nebraska. She was launched 4 January 1945 by
Consolidated Steel at Wilmington, California; and commissioned 25
February 1945 Commander L. E. Divoll in command. Loaded to capacity
with cargo and passengers, Fillmore sailed from San Francisco 25
April 1945, bound for Espiritu Santo. Here she landed men and
cargo, and loaded aircraft engines, spare parts, and a few
passengers for Samar. She departed the Philippines 31 May to embark
men and material bound for Pearl Harbor at Biak, Humboldt Bay, and
Ulithi, and after exchanging passengers at Pearl Harbor, sailed 29
June for San Francisco.
