The Crew members of the USS Henrico APA-45 would like to welcome you to their web site.

This site contains a full history of our ship, a listing of her crew, an honor page of those that gave their lives aboard her during war time and members who have died after their time aboard. You'll find pictures of the Henrico, some of the ships company and some new amphibious landing craft with links to other ships and points of interest.
If you're looking for a good novel to read, consider The Trident Deception by Cmdr Rick Campbell (Ret).  I's a submarine thriller, in the style of Tom Clancy.  Here are links to several outlets to purchase the book in multiple formats (hardcover, e-book, audio book), as well as some reviews of the book...


Barnes & Noble

“Fans of submarine thrillers who are saddened by the demise of Tom Clancy will welcome Campbell’s debut.”
— Publishers Weekly
“A terrific thriller debut. Campbell does an amazing job, balancing character interaction with high-octane action, all the while keeping the technical jargon to a level understandable by nonmilitary readers. This is the best novel about a submarine since Tom Clancy’s classic The Hunt For Red October (1984).”
— Jeff Ayers, Booklist (starred review)
“No one puts the reader inside a submarine like Rick Campbell does in The Trident Deception. I couldn’t put it down. Compelling and thrilling, this novel is a must read.”
— Jack Coughlin, New York Times bestselling author of Shooter and Time to Kill
“The Trident Deception is a fistfight of a thriller.  A masterpiece.”
— Dalton Fury, former Delta Force, and New York Times bestselling author of Kill Bin Laden and Tier One Wild
New Addition to the Photo Gallery!

Kirk and Debbie Scott have provided us with a high resolution photo of the Henrico crew from 1946.  Mr. Scott's father was Elvin Scott, Bm2c, who reported aboard the Henrico on 3/6/1946.

The photo can be zoomed in very close, and you can move around the photo and see each crew member's face, and you can even see details on the ship in the background.  If you have trouble viewing the photo, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash can get it here if you need it.

Thank you for the photo, Kirk and Debbie!
