VF-10 Grim Reapers[edit]

Under the section that refers to the Battle of the Eastern Solomons, it states that this is the first deployment for the Grim Reapers under Flatley, but all the material I have read indicates that the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands was the first deployment for VF-10 (for that matter, Air Group 10). cv6.org seems to confirm this. Does anyone else have evidence to the contrary? 2601:8C0:C000:7A14:7D73:432C:DC73:2F14 (talk) 19:17, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Do you have cites for any of the supporting material you've mentioned reading? - theWOLFchild 05:05, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Return to Duty[edit]

I checked her War Diary on Fold3.Com, and it says for August 1945:

12-Aug-45 CV-6 ENTERPRISE leaves PSNY Dry Dock #4 and moors on Pier 6, PSNY

17-Aug-45 CV-6 ENTERPRISE commences loading GSK and aviation stores at PSNY.

24-Aug-45 CV-6 ENTERPRISE holds dock trials at PSNY.

25-Aug-45 CV-6 ENTERPRISE commences ammunition loading at PSNY.

31-Aug-45 CV-6 ENTERPRISE completes loading stores, provisions and all machinery/communications tests and makes preparations for leaving yard.

She is NOT

The carrier sailed for and was fully repaired at the Puget Sound Navy Yard. Near ready, with all planes aboard at the degaussing/demagnetizing range off the Strait of Juan de Fuca when the Nagasaki bombing ended the war on 9 August 1945.[2]

In fact, the citation for that leads to

https://www.history.navy.mil/research/histories/ship-histories/danfs/e/enterprise-cv-6-vii.html

Which says nothing of the sort:

Enterprise mercifully missed the final days of carnage off Okinawa while she completed an overhaul and repairs in drydock (12 June–31 August) at Puget Sound and learned of the Japanese surrender. Enterprise steamed more than 275,000 miles during the war, and the planes that flew from her flight deck were credited with sinking or helping to sink 71 enemy ships, and damaging 192 more. The Japanese damaged the ship on six separate occasions by at least 13 hits or near-misses from bombs or suicide planes, and she also suffered hits from the two “friendly” 5-inch anti-aircraft shells.

The repairs and alterations, which included removing sponsons to permit the ship to pass through the Panama Canal, were completed on 12 September 1945. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AlternateWars (talkcontribs) 20:39, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
