USS SKAGIT

CAPTAINS

and

EXECUTIVE OFFICERS

1945-1969





This page is a work in progress. This list was developed using information from former crew members. We still need the missing Captains and XOs. Also change of command dates, first names and middle initials, of Captains and XOs. Any help would be appreciated.


As of this date, I think we have all the Captains and Executive Officers from August, 1950 through July, 1969. Until we know the dates the XOs reported aboard, they will only be listed in order of service.
