The Captain Jack
by Thomas B. De Mott
June 28, 2004
The Captain Jack was a former USS naval vessel (USS APc-110).
She was a small coastal transport. My father Thomas B. De Mott
Jr was on her commissioning crew and later her Commanding Officer.
I had the great privlege of being onboard her on her 60th anniversary
July 3rd 2003 in Craig Alaska. We watched the fireworks the next
day late at night.
The Captain Jack prior
to her loss...
Both Gregg Parsley and his partner Beverly had invested immeasurable
hours into her restoration and her loss is a great one both for
them, myself but also some of the former crew members of USS
APc-110 who had just recently had the opportunity to go aboard
her albeit not underway.
I look forward with curious interest into the investigation of
Thomas B. De Mott Jr.
