The Transport MASSACHUSETTS
Contributed by Jay E. Moore
This is an image of the transport
The ship was formerly a liner with Bernard Baker's Atlantic Transport
Line. As she awaits at a cargo terminal, her decks are crowded with
volunteers in dark clothing. It is interesting to note that the ship
name is painted over with "No. 22 U.S.A. / Q.M.DEP'T." indicating that
the ship was transport #22 and operated by the Army's Quartermaster
Department. The ship would later be called the U.S.A.T. SHERIDAN.
