This website was created in November 2015 and is maintained by 3 of the grandchildren of Tom McDermott who served on the USS Pringle and survived the sinking:
Jim Sandelier: created the original USS Pringle website in the 1990's. Jim is the son of a USS Pringle survivor and deserves a TON of credit for finding and compiling all of this information over the years.
A big thank you to Jeff and Pattie Parsons for the financial support to cover annual hosting and administration costs. Pattie is the daughter to Tom McDermott who served on the USS Pringle and survived the sinking.
