Hi. I'm trying to locate any information on a minesweeper called The Mighty Strive, USS AM-117 commissioned in WWII. She sailed all over the world - Europe, Africa, Asia. My grandfather was on board. I would love to see the ships log. Thoughts??? Can anyone point me in a direction where I might locate any information? Thank you.
