Battery Fire at Mariveles Harbor
Hopewell joined in the amphibious assault on Corregidor February 14, and while clearing obstructions from Mariveles Harbor with gunfire engaged a large battery on the rock. The destroyer laid smoke and moved in to help damaged YMS-48, and soon received four hits, putting her battery control station out of commission. ... Although suffering 17 casualties, Hopewell remained in Manila Bay until 18 February, when she sailed to Manus for repairs.
