Can someone help me find out the name of the ship my great grandfather was on?

I am looking for my great grandfathers service records from WWII.
His name was Glenn O Tiffany and he enlisted Oct 25 1943 and was released Jan 10 1946.
He was a MoMM 1c in the Navy during his service.
I'm hoping to find out what ship he was stationed on, as the only proof of his service I can find is a news article when he was on his way home on the Enterprise in October of 1945, and then a news article that he was honorably discharged at Lido Beach Naval Separation Center in Jan. 1946.
I looked through the muster rolls for the Enterprise in the year 1945- early 1946 and did not see him listed, I'm not sure if this is because he was not actually on the crew and was a passenger or what may be the case.
I'm hoping I can get some sort of more details on his service as my grandfather and his siblings are all passed and I don't really have a source of knowledge on this so I have been digging on my own for what I could find.

That post is in the wrong thread, the numbers are models of motor car made by the Rover Car company last century.
