a real beauty. My grandfather, Lester Maki, served on the Laws in WWII. He was a gunners mate. Id like to think maybe he was on her when some of these pics were taken. He passed away in 1993. To all his shipmates: Thank you for everything.

Thanks for your comments. It's remarkable that sons & grandsons of crew members have shown real interest in their fathers service aboard the Laws. What a wonderful thing that is!!!

I live in Zephyrhills Florida and we were eating at Gold Corral and I noticed an elderly gentleman wearing a ballcap with this USS Laws on it. So as you can see I looked it up. These men and women of this time were real heroes with a capital H. Bybthe way before we left I approsched their table and said thanks for your service. I am 61 and served 2 years in the US Army. Thanks toall of you who served in all wars.
