1 SS Black DD666 Histor The USS BLACK QDD666j was built in Kearny, New jersey, and commissioned on 21 May 1943 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Brooklyn, New York. The ship is named after Lieutenant Commander Hugh D. BLACK, the Commanding Officer of the USS JACOB JONES fDD15Oj, who was lost at sea when the ship was torpedoed and sunk in the Northern Atlantic on the morning of 28 February 1942. From the fall of 1943, when she reported to the Pacific Fleet, until the summer of 1946, the destroyer BLACK operated in the Western Pacific from the Philippines to japan. In August 1946, she was inacti- vated at San Pedro, California. She was recommissioned on 18 July 1951 for the Korean conflict and was or- dered to the Atlantic Fleet where she operated until 1953. During this period the ship was refitted at the Naval Shipyard, Norfolk, Virginia. Un 10 January 1953 She joined Destroyer Division 281 for an around the world cruise. On this cruise BLACK saw her first combat since August 1945 when she took part in harass- ing shore bombardments off the coast of Korea. At the close of the conflict she continued her round the world good will tour, returning to Norfolk in Decem- ber 1953. She remained a unit of the Second Fleet un- til january 1955 when she was transferred to the Pa- cific Fleet, transiting the Panama Canal on 16 january 1955. From 1955 to the present time BLACK has operated as a unit of FIRST and SEVENTH Fleets in the Pacific. She has served in Vietnam with distinction. During her 1965 WESTPAC cruise, BLACK saw her first combatant action since Korea. That year she shelled Viet Cong strongholds on the Vietnamese coast in addition to serving at "Yankee Station" and being one of the first ships on Dperation Market Time - the Navy's infiltration surveillance mission. During BLACK'S 1966 WESTPAC cruise she served at both "Yankee Station" and "Dixie Station" in support of operations against the Viet Cong, as well as conducting extensive shore bombardment against the enemy on the coast of Vietnam and up the Saigon River. This is BLACK'S third deployment to Vietnam and eleventh WESTPAC cruise.
