Check here to visit the USS Arikara. The USS Arikara was a Navy Ocean Going Tug. She was laid down as AT 98 on 10 January 1943, and launched on 22 June 1943. The USS Arikara (AT 98) was commissioned on 5 January 1944. The Arikara as well as others of the AT class was re-designated as (ATF 98) on 15 May, 1944. She assisted in salvage work on the Evans on May 11, 1945.

The Capps (DD-550), a sister ship to the Evans, was commissioned on 23 June 1943 and reported to the Atlantic Fleet. After considerable action in the Atlantic, she joined the escort of a troop convoy bound for Pearl Harbor, arriving 20 January 1944.

The Hadley was commissioned on 25 November 1944, decommissioned 15 December 1945 and scrapped shortly after. It lived for only 385 days. She fought beside the Evans on 11 May, 1945, lost 28 shipmates with 67 wounded and, like the Evans, received the Presidential Unit Citation.
