Loking at a Wille D. Porter page:

 

http://www.navsource.org/archives/05/579.htm

 

And it lists 2 CO's:

LCDR Wilfred Aves Walter    Jul 6 1943 - Nov 14 1943 (Later RADM)
CDR Charles Melville Keyes    Nov 14 1943 - Jun 10 1945
 

Doesn't say much about their later careers?  Any info about their later careers?

After all the shenanigans that the Willie D. Porter did it wouldn't surprise me if the commanding officers of the ship were transferred to the Axis team.
