The USS Alywin is named in honor of my grandfather whom served aboard DD-355 during WW2. He however avoided the subject about what happend at Pearl but did tell us about them killing a Jap sub.
The USS McKean is my heritage name and is in honor of....
William Wister McKean (19 September 1800 - 22 April 1865) was an admiral in the United States Navy during the American Civil War. He was noted for his service in the Union blockade that effectively closed Confederate seaports in the Gulf of Mexico. Born in Pennsylvania, McKean was the grandson of Thomas McKean, the governor of that state. McKean was appointed midshipman 30 November 1814. He served in the Navy from the War of 1812 to the Civil War, when he rose to the rank of flag officer in command of the Gulf Blockading Squadron and later the East Gulf Blockading Squadron. McKean was relieved from active duty 4 June 1862.
Rest in Peace DD-784 and DD-355. Both were canned for parts and scrapped for metal was their fate, an ill way for a ship to die in my opinion.
