Question:  I have been researching the reference in my ancestor's military file that he served on "TB-15".   I am not entirely sure of what the vessel was can you assist me?

 

Answer:  The Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships http://www.hazegray.org/danfs/ lists the "TB-15" as Torpedo Boat No. 15 the Talbot. The Talbot was constructed and launched in 1897, and was sold for scrap in 1944.  To learn more about this vessel go online to:  http://www.hazegray.org/danfs/destroy/tb15.htm
