USS Basilone (DD824) Gearing-class Destroyer, Laid down 7 July 1945, Commissioned 26 July 1949, decommissioned 1 November 1977.Every time there is a thread about a 'USS Gifford' or a 'USNS Milk' my biggest complaint is 'where is the USS Basilone or USS Boyington?'.
Giving credit where credit where credit is due:
USS Basilone (DDG122) An Arleigh Burke-class Flight IIA Guided Missile Destroyer, under construction, due to be commissioned 2019.
A good number of Destroyers are named after MoH winners....
