LCT(6)-725 was brought from the United States in two pieces and delivered to the Admiralty Islands where the two sections were off loaded into shallow water that was protected by a reef. The two pieces were then joined (bolted together) by crew members who had to swim underwater using large wrenches to bolt the two sections together. Once assembled, LCT(6)-725's ballast tanks were filled with compressed air to float her to the surface. The fear of the crew beyond the enemy was sharks, sun and coral snakes.||Photo by Bernard DeNoma LCT-725 radioman and machine gunner|
