This week in 1945, the PC 552 was transferred back from the war in the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast. What did you do this week?
The USS PC 552 came back from Victory in Europe fully expecting to join the war in the Pacific against Japan and they were transferred to the Pacific theater on 20 June 1945; two days before arriving home. They survived Europe but would they survive Japan? They didn’t know.

On 06 August 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on a Japanese city which had no effect on the Japanese war effort. The Soviet Union attacked Japanese troops in Manchuria. The United States dropped another bomb on 09 August 1945 which finally convinced the Japanese to surrender on 15 August 1945. Suddenly, the crew of the PC 552, who fully expected to face war again, found itself part of a peacetime navy for the first time. This beautiful photo is of the US Navy forces docked in Tokyo bay the evening of 27 August 1945. That is Mount Fuji the background.
