A Google Map by Dennis B. McCarty. History of USS Saginaw Bay (CVE-82) from keel laying in Vancouver, WA, to scrapping in Rotterdam.

Dennis is the son of Vernon C. McCarty, EM2/c, who served aboard Saginaw Bay during World War II. Dennis explains: "I believe that the information is factually and historically correct. The map is very intuitive and reveals a lot of information when you use the dialogue box, click on locations or legs of travel, etc. The more that you zoom in, the easier it is to separate each item."
