off Okinawa 25 March. The next 5 days she spent with a fire support unit bombarding the island in anticipation of the landings on l April. On 27 March, when her task force first came under air attack, she fired on a Japanese plane which crashed close aboard on her bow, inflicting no casualties. After the landings, FOREMAN was assigned to antisubmarine patrol off the entrance to the transport anchorage at Kerama Retto. Here, on 3 April, she suffered a direct hit when a lone enemy bomber attacked her. The bomb passed through her bottom to explode about 30 feet below. All power and light were lost, and one of her firerooms flooded to the waterline, but no men were killed. Within 30 minutes, damage was under control, and repairs had been made to allow her to make her way under her own power into Kerama Retto for emergency repairs. Fully repaired at Ulithi between l7 April l945 and 29 May, FOREMAN returned to patrol off Okinawa 3 June, 8 days later shooting down a kamikaze with the aid of a sister destroyer before it could crash her. On 29 June, she was assigned to escort duty with a force covering minesweeping operations in the East China Sea and flying air strikes on Chinese targets, serving with this task force until returning to Okinawa l6 August for brief overhaul. Escort duty from Buckner Bay followed until 26 September, when she sailed from Wakayama, Japan, with homeward bound servicemen. Arriving at San Diego l7 October, she disembarked her passengers and sailed on to the east coast. FOREMAN was decommissioned at Green Cove Springs, Fla., 28 June l946.
