Ken,

Exactly what are you looking for? I have a lot of technical data on the crash boats but little operational material.

PT boat veteran Parker Miller served aboard Ron 1 PT 27 in the Aleutians.

I believe PT 27 was later converted at the Bremerton Shipyard into a crash boat that saw action in the South Pacific.

Parker and the crew of the boat participated in the Iwo Jima landings, where according to him they retrieved the bodies of dead Marines from the water and "stacked them like cordwood" on the deck of the former PT boat.
