This website was created in November 2015 and is maintained by three of the grandchildren of Tom McDermott who served on the USS Pringle and survived the sinking: 

  • Jonathon Parsons,
  • Charles Parsons,
  • Thomas Parsons,

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 David Black of Aegis Sciences Corporation in Nashville Tennessee for financially supporting this website. David is the son of a USS Pringle survivor: Donald Eugene Black.
