Mustang Island Liberty Ship Reef (MU-802)
Donor: Texas Coastal & Marine Council
Structure: Liberty Ship-Charles A. Dana:bow
Distance From: Port Aransas 18 nm
 

"The Mustang Island Liberty Ship Reef is composed of three Liberty Ships, the Conrad Weiser, the Rachel Jackson and the Charles A. Dana. The Rachael Jackson broke in two pieces when placed at the reef site. Nine other Liberty Ships are located at other reef sites along the Texas coast. Brochures for these reef sites are available from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Though Liberty Ships were not intended as combat vessels, all three found themselves in the midst of battle. After an escort ship from the Dana’s Atlantic convoy fired on a U-boat, an unknown object, possibly a dud torpedo or part of the submarine, struck the Dana and slid along her side for almost fifteen feet. The Rachel Jackson was attacked by enemy aircraft on the way to Alexandria, and managed to hit one of the planes with anti-aircraft fire. For her crew’s efforts in repelling a Luftwaffe attack while in convoy across the Mediterranean, the Conrad Weiser received the Operation and Engagement Star." - https://tpwd.texas.gov/publications/pwdpubs/media/pwd_br_v3400_0424.pdf
