Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr. United Staes Navy 1882-1959 Fleet Admiral Halsey was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, October 30, 1882, the son of Captain William F. Halsey, USN, and Anne Brewster Halsey. He was appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy in 1900 and graduated in February 1904. After graduation. Admiral Halsey served in many capacities ranging from Naval Attache to ship commands. Much of his early career during and subsequent to World War I was devoted to commanding destroyers. In 1935, at the age of 52, he won his wings and designated a Naval Aviator. The succeeding years brought to the forefront of his time-tested command abilities and saw Admiral Halsey commanding first the USS SARATOGO and later the South Pacific area where he tioggedly set about and succeeded in routing enemy forces from Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands. In June 1944, Admiral Halsey assumed command of the Third Fleet and was designated commander of the Western Pacific Task Force. Beginning in August 1944, his forces left a trail of enemy ruin and destruction in Palaus, Philippine, Formosa (Taiwan), Okinawa and the South China Sea, and decisively defeated enemy sea and air force operations in the Western Carolines and the Philippine Islands. In the final phase of the war in the Pacific, Admiral Halsey ' s Third Fleet participated in the Okinawa Campaign, and later his first carrier task forces proceeded northward and struck at Tokyo in July 1945. In November 1945, Admiral Halsey relinquished command of Third Fleet which had exemplified his slogan: ' ' Hit Hard, Hit Fast, Hit Often " . Fleet Admiral Halsey retired from active duty in December 1946. Admiral Halsey died and was buried with full military honors on August 20, 1959 in Arlington National Cemetery.
