Subject: USS Brush in World War II

Dear Sir

According to my mother, her brother, George Schabloske (1918-1994), was stationed on the USS Brush during World War II. We know he was in the Navy and was discharged in 1946. Is there any way I can get any offical doumentation of this? I would appreciate any help I can get on this.

She also related a story that once while in battle, the ship was struck, damaging the rudder and that the Brush was going in circles. Her brother worked to repair the damage, and that he never had worked so fast in his life.

Could you also confirm that this ever occurred in WWII.

Thank you were much.
