Non-Standard, OSS & Other Operations

This section has grown so large that I have decided to split it into two submenus for easier navigation. All the original material is still here and even more. Also check for the OSS Album in Photos & Missions.
Non-Standard Operations covers the post air sea rescue service of the boats. The biggest articles are on their use as torpedo  and missile retrievers as well as drone launchers.
OSS & Other Special Ops  covers the crash boat operations of the OSS and the 7th ERBS, which seem to be intertwinded. In addition,  Special Navy operations, i.e. Navy Beach Jumper Units and their participation in the invasion of Sicily.
