Response to 60 years ago... August 6, 1945
I'll never know for sure. But it's quite possible. LST's were to have been among the primary targets during the defense of the Japanese mainland (which just happens to make a lot of sense). And my Dad's name was on the roster for that invasion.
Click here for a very detailed monograph titled "The Final Months of the War with Japan: Signals Intelligence, U.S. Invasion Planning, and the A-Bomb Decision." (So far, I've just quickly skimmed through it, but it looks to be pretty informative.
