Stanley Greenberg was part of DD-529's commissioning crew
of May 10, 1943. At that time his rating was a MoMM2c (Motor
Machinist's Mate Second Class). By the time of the ship's
sinking on April 6, 1945 his rating had increased to MoMM1c.
Greenberg's hometown was Haverhill, Massachusetts. He enlisted in the Navy in 1942. As a "Motor Mac", he would have been assigned duties in the ship's Engineering Division as a diesel mechanic.
Greenberg was lost with the USS BUSH, though details about his death are not known. Being listed as "missing in action" meant that his body was not recovered. He may have perished at the time one of three kamikazes struck the ship, or struggled in the water after the ship sank.
The picture at the right was published in his hometown paper.
