USS Sangay (AE-10) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Sangay was an ammunition ship laid down on October 30, 1941, and launched on April 5, 1942. The name of the ship comes from Sangay volcano, and it is suggestive to what would happen to an ammunition carrier if an enemy fire would hit it. On March 25, 1943, the USS Sangay was commissioned and started to serve in the US Navy under Comdr. W.D. Ryan's command. Some of its missions were carried out in Pearl Harbor, Marshall Islands, Palau Islands, Kossol Passage, and Okinawa. On July 20, 1947, after 4 years of serving in the US Navy, the USS Sangay was decommissioned and sold for scrap on July 1, 1960. It carried a complement of over 300 people on board and, for the services brought to the country during World War II, it received 2 battle stars.
