I think you'll have to look at where these two ships were during the war.  The following is the information I've found as it was presented on fold3.com.  They are not in order, I'll leave that to you.

Google searching the USS APL 33, it appears to be a modified barge, that was towed around for temporary barracks.  The USS Duncan appears to have been deployed to the Pacific.
