Missouri, son of Emmett F. and Martha David. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1919 and served until 1939 when he was transferred to the Fleet Reserve. Recalled to active duty in late 1939, he was appointed Machinist in 1942, commissioned Ensign in late 1942, and progressed to the rank of Lieutenant by July, 1943. On being recalled to active duty, he spent time at Submarine Repair School and Naval Training School. He was assigned duty with the USS PILLSBURY Precommissioning Detail at Orange, Texas in 1943. Lieutenant David served as Assistant Engineering and Electrical Officer aboard USS PILLSBURY in Anti-Submarine Task Group TWENTY-TWO POINT THREE when that Ask Group captured the German Submarine U-505 off Cape Blanco, French West Africa. Lieutenant David was awarded the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty for his role in this historic seizure. He boldly led a party from the PILLS BURY in boarding the hostile submarine as it circled erratically at five or six knots on the surface, fully aware that the U-Boat might momentarily sink or be blown up by exploding demolition. Under the danger of enemy gunfire he plunged into the coming tower hatch and with his party exerted sufficient effort to keep the submarine afloat. His party then assisted succeeding and more fully equipped salvage parties in making the U- 505 seaworthy for the long tow across the Atlantic to a U.S. port. Significantly, the code books discovered aboard the U-505 were instrumental in breaking the code that the German High Command used to communicate with its submaries. For this service during the capture of the U-505, Lieutenant David was awarded the Navy Cross. This award was later withdrawn in favor of the Medal of Honor which was to have been presented to the Lieutenant at the White House on Nimitz Day, but illness prevented him from receiving it. Lieutenant David died September 17, 1945, and the Medal of Honor was presented to his wife, Mrs. Lynda Mae David. Lieutenant Albert L DAVID United States Naval Reserve USS ALBERT DAVID (FF-1050) Designed for the primary purpose of combating enemy submarines, ALBERT DAVID may be employed defensively as an escort ship or offensively as a member of a submarine Hunter-Killer force. To enable her to perform her missions effectively, she is equipped with the most modern weapons of the Navy ' s ASW arsenal, including a long range, bow-mounted SONAR, Anti- submarine Rocket Launcher (ASROC), and acoustic-homing torpedoes. ALBERT DAVID also carries two 5 38 caliber semi- automatic gun mounts. ALBERT DAVID is fitted with the Navy ' s newest distillate fueled power plant. Two pressure fired steam generators equipped with gas-turbine-driven superchargers and automatic combustion control systems burn clean distillate fuel. Superheated steam at a pressure of 1200 psi is used to drive the ship ' s main propulsion turbine and two 500KW turbo-electric generators. Two dicsel driven generators produce an additional lOOOKW of electric power. The ALBERT DAVlD ' s first Western Pacific cruise completed in April of 1970 showed that she had many and varied roles as a combatant ship. Aside from her primary role of anti-submarine warfare (ASW): she acted as a rescue destroyer for the flight operations of aircraft carriers, provided assistance in several rescue missions, and furnished gunfire support for land based forces. In this last capacity of naval gunfire support, the Gunfire Commander said: ALBERT DAVID ' s consistently professional performance while providing naval gunfire support has been a source of great satisfaction to the gunllne commander. DAVID could always be counted on to be responsive to the need of the ground units supported and her impressive gun damage assessment record shows she was accurate in her delivery of fire. This comment is indicative of the outstanding manner in which the ALBERT DAVID has functioned as an integral part of our nation ' s security.
