Marvin Scott reported to USS Bush (DD-529) on December 8, 1943. On this date, the ship was moored at Pearl Harbor following the end the ship's role in the Aleutian Islands war effort. Marvin was a Torpedoman 3rd Class at this time. By April 6, 1945, Marvin had earned another stripe. He was Marvin Scott - TM2c. Marvin would lose his life serving alongside his shipmate, Carl Tillman. 

NOTE: Ray Mayhugh remembered many years later that Marvin Scott's parents had somehow received word that USS Bush survivors would reach San Francisco aboard USS Henrico. Marvin's parents were there to meet the ship. Ray was asked to speak with them about the loss of their son and did so. Ray thought the Scott family must have had some "connections" to be able to find out when and where survivors of the USS Bush sinking would return to the States.
