The History of the U. S. S. THEODORE E. CHANDLER
The U. S. S. THEODORE E. CHANDLER has spent nearly half of
its brief history in Far Eastern waters, including operations in the
Korean theater for nearly one third of its time in active service.
The ship is named in honor of Rear Admiral Theodore Edson
Chandler, USN. Born in 1894 and commissioned from the Naval
Academy in June of 1915, he rose to the rank of Rear Admiral
during World War Il. Admiral Chandler was killed in action on 7
January 1945 on board his fiagship. the U.S.S. LOUISVILLE, in Lingayen
Gulf,l Philippine Islands.
A long-hull 2250 ton destroyer, the CHANDLER was placed in
commission in the United States Navy at the Federal Shipbuilding
and Drydocking Company, Kearny, New Jersey, on 22 March 1946.
The ship's maiden voyage took her through the Panama Canal
to ioin Destroyer Squadron Seventeen in San Diego. This designa-
tion has since been changed to Eleven. The ship now operates as
a part of Destroyer Division 111 along with the USS WILTSIE IDD
716l, USS HAMNER lDD 718I, and the USS CHEVALIER lDDR 805I.
Prior to the outbreak of the Korean War, the CHANDLER made
two tours on "China Station" about which a book of that name
was written by a CHANDLER officer. Upon the invasion of South
Korea, the CHANDLER, as part of Des Div 111, was ordered to
Korean waters. On this, her first Korean tour, the CHANDLER at
one time spent 66 straight days at sea and on another occasion
expended her entire load of ammunition in two days in stopping
the attack of a North Korean division on the Pusan perimeter.
The ship's second tour lasted nine months and was distinguished
by a furious battle with shore batteries in the harbor of Chongiin,
after the enemy had opened fire on the USS ENDICOTT iDMS 35I.
With the aid of spotting aircraft, the CHANDLER was credited with
destroying six enemy batteries of 105 mm guns.
The CHANDLER's third Korean tour began on 2 January 1953.
Following the usual rotation from fast carrier Task Force 77 to
Formosa Patrol to shore bombardment with Task Force 95, the ship
earned high praise for its operations by destroying an enemy train
21' Igorea and attaining membership in the exclusive "Trainbuster's
This, the first F ,
tilitles, took the ship from San Diego on 12 March 1954 to Pearl
ar Eastern cruise since the end of Korean hos
Harbor' -lUP.C1f1, The Philippines and various other areas in the
Western Pacific. During this cruise, the CHANDLER operated with
numerous task groups in training exercises and patrol duties, con-
cludlnglhe 19Ur by returning to San Diego on 12 September 1954.
