Matagorda Island Liberty Ship Reef (MI-616)
Donor: Texas Coastal & Marine Council
Structure: Liberty Ship-Dwight L. Moody
Distance From: Port OConnor 22 nm
 

"The Matagorda Island Liberty Ship Reef is composed of three Liberty Ships, the Dwight L. Moody, the Jim Bridger and the George Dewey. 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. The Dwight L. Moody made the perilous Atlantic crossing several times during World War II; one convoy was attacked, with two ships torpedoed. Both the Jim Bridger and the George Dewey served in the Normandy invasion, transporting Army and Navy personnel and cargo. The crew of the George Dewey received the Operation and Engagement Star for their participation in the initial phases of the invasion. The crew of the Jim Bridger later received the Philippine Liberation ribbon for services including a landing at Mindanao." - https://tpwd.texas.gov/publications/pwdpubs/media/pwd_br_v3400_0424a.pdf
