USS Worden crashes*

The USS Worden was guarding the transport Arthur Middleton as it put the preliminary Army security unit on the shores of Constantine Harbor, Amchitka Island in the Aleutian Islands. The destroyer maneuvered into the rock-edged harbor and stayed there until the last men had landed but was swept onto rocks that breached her hull beneath her engine room. The destroyer then began breaking up in the surf; Comdr. William G. Pogue, the stricken destroyer's commanding officer, ordered abandon ship, and, as he was directing that effort, was swept overboard by a wave that broke over the ship. The captain was rescued, but 14 crew members died in the accident.
