and the Visayas to give the United States dominance in the air over Leyte when the invasion began on 20 October. On 10 September ''Manley'' took on board 50 tons of explosives, slated as reserves for underwater demolition team work in the proposed invasion of Yap. She left Pearl Harbor on the 15th and proceeded via Eniwetok to Manus, Admiralty Islands. There word arrived that the operation against Yap had been canceled and that the forces assembled would strike Leyte (Leyte (island)) in the Philippines. ''Manley'' was then assigned to the bombardment and fire support group which arrived in Leyte Gulf early on 18 October. Between 21 August and 2 September, ''Appalachian'' carried out training exercises off Maui in preparation for an assault on Yap. However, this operation was later canceled. The ship departed Hawaiian waters on 15 September and proceeded to Manus (Manus Island), Admiralty Islands, for additional training. On 26 August 1944, ''Evans'' sailed from Eniwetok to screen the fueling and aircraft replacement group for the assault and occupation of the Palau Islands, and arriving at Ulithi on 30 October, served on patrol and escort duty there through 11 January 1945. After a special assignment to hunt submarines near Yap and to bombard that island, from 11 to 13 January, ''Evans'' sailed to Saipan, from which she screened transports to the landings on Iwo Jima (Battle of Iwo Jima) on 19 February. She conducted shore bombardment and supported the troops ashore with harassing fire on Japanese positions, then screened escort carrier (escort aircraft carrier)s until 8 March, when she sailed to Ulithi. right thumb 150px The flag of the United States was used in the TTPI from 1944 to the early 1980s (50-star version since 1960) (File:Flag of the United States.svg) The '''flag of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands''' (TTPI) consisted of a light blue field that contained six white stars centered in a circle pattern. The stars symbolized the six districts of the former trusteeship: the Marianas (Northern Mariana Islands), the Marshall Islands, Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Palau. The blue field symbolized freedom and loyalty. *** Truk (16–17 February) *** Palau-Yap-Ulithi-Woleai (30 March – 1 April) and *** Truk-Satawan-Ponape (Pohnpei) (29 April – 1 May); '''Yapese''' is a language spoken by the people on the island of Yap (Federated States of Micronesia). As the emphasis shifted from the South Pacific (South Pacific Area) to the Central Pacific (Pacific Ocean) in early 1944, so too, did the need for destroyers. On 24 March, ''Stanly'' exited Purvis Bay and, by the 30th, was cruising in the screen of Vice Admiral Marc A. Mitscher's Fast Carrier Task Force (then-called TF 58) as it launched planes against the Palau Islands. On the next day, she sailed north of Palau as Task Group 58.4 (TG 58.4) sent strikes against both Palau and Yap. The carriers' planes hit Woleai on 1 April and began retiring to Majuro. ''Stanly'' arrived in Majuro lagoon on the 6th and underwent repairs until the 30th. She spent the month of May in operations and exercises around Majuro. From 3 to 8 June, in company with ''Indianapolis'' (USS Indianapolis (CA-35)) (CA-35), the destroyer made the circuit from Majuro to Kwajalein to Eniwetok, leaving the latter atoll on the 8th to rejoin TF 58. '''John Haglelgam''' (b. August 10, 1949 in Yap) was the second President (President of the Federated States of Micronesia) of the Federated States of Micronesia. He served from 1987-1991. He is a native of Eauripik Island, Yap. The task force covered the unopposed landings on Emirau Island (Landing on Emirau) on the 20th. On 26 March, ''Thatcher'' was reassigned to TG 58.3 of the Fast Carrier Task Force. She escorted the carriers as their aircraft flew strikes against Palau, Yap, Ulithi, and Woleai in the Caroline Islands from 30 March to 1 April.
