    40323 RANARD MASON CROWE b. 5 Mar. 1923; d. 29 Jan. 1945 on ammunition       ship "USS Serpens" WWII buried Arlington National Cemetery Arlington,       Va.

      USS Serpens, a "Liberty"-type cargo ship laid down, 10 March 1943, as a Maritime Commission type (EC2-S-C1) hull, under Maritime Commission contract (MCE hull 739), at California Shipbuilding Corp., at Wilmington, California, as the S.S. Benjamin N. Cardozo, was converted for Navy service while under construction. This ship was launched on 5 April 1943. She was transferred to the Navy on 19 April 1943, renamed USS Serpens and designated cargo ship AK-97 and was United States Coast Guard manned World War II cargo [Liberty] ship. Commissioned in May 1943 with a Coast Guard crew, she served in the South Pacific and was modified in late 1944 for the transportation of ammunition.

      The Serpens was destroyed late in the evening on January 29, 1945. The Serpens was anchored off Lunga Beach, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands in the South Pacific loading depth charges. While the Commanding Officer, one officer and six enlisted men were ashore. The remaining crewmen were loading depth charges into her holds when the Serpens suddenly exploded.

      After the explosion, only the bow of the ship was visible. The rest had disintegrated, and the bow sank soon afterward. 193 Coast Guard crewmen, 56 Army stevedores, and a Public Health Service physician, Dr. Harry M. Levin, were killed in the explosion. Only two of those on board, SN 1/c Kelsie K. Kemp and SN 1/c George S. Kennedy, who had been in the boatswain's locker, survived. The force of the explosion was so great that a U. S. Army soldier who was a shore was killed by shrapnel. The cause of the explosion was never completely determined .

      Those who died are buried at Arlington Cemetery in Washington DC. The largest group burial at Arlington National Cemetery took place on June 15, 1949, when 250 men from the USS Serpens were interred in 52 caskets because it was impossible to identify each individual in an era before DNA was discovered. This catastrophe was the single greatest disaster suffered by the U.S. Coast Guard during World War II. There were 30 grave sites set aside for the burials, arranged in five rows of six graves each. The 52 caskets were buried in 28 graves. Two grave sites in the center of the block of 30 were reserved for the 5 foot octagonal memorial on which all names were inscribed.
