Our proud ship Was launched 5 May l945 and commissioned 28 October l945 in the Bethlehem Steel Shipyards, San Pedro, California. One of the latest 2200 ton destroyers, converted into a light minelayer, she bears the name of the late Bear Admiral Aaron Ward, USN, who commanded the USS Wasp during the Spanish-American War, a ship that distinguished herself and her captain. Two other ships have also borne this celebrated name: DD l32, a l2UU ton ship transferred to the British early in the War, and the DD483, a valiant l6'5O tonner that participated in the Battle of Savo lsland and invasion of Guadalcanal before she was sunk on 7 April l943. The Aaron Ward, lll, helped blaze the way for the invasion of Okinawa, and later served as Radar Picket Vessel in that campaign during "The Kamikaze Blitz". With her performance on 3 May, our ship joined the ranks of Navy irnmortals, and Won for herself undying fame as "the ship that can't be licked." -IH-
