    When I arrived in The Republic of South Korea (Pusan Perimeter)on 08/02/50 I never thought that we would have such a truly great Navy vessel named after a battle in which we would participate: that we would end up receiving Four Presidential Unit Citations and have such an impact on the prosecution of the Korean War. But having such a world class naval vessel carrying the name of one one of those battles is frosting on our cake. We thank all those who have serve aboard our ship and who have maintained it as one of the finest naval ships in the world.
