USS John Young (DD-973) USS JOHN YOUNG is the eleventh Spruance Class destroyer and the ninth to join the Pacific Fleet. Built by Litton Industries of Pascagoula, Mississippi, JOHN YOUNG is a member of the first class of ships in the U.S. Navy to have gas turbine power. Four General Electric LM-2500 engines, marine versions of those used on DC-10 and C-5A aircraft, drive the ship at speeds in excess of 30 knots. Twin controllable-reversible pitch propellers provide JOHN YOUNG with a degree of maneuverability unique among warships her size (563 feet long and displacing 8000 tons). JOHN YOUNG is a multi-mission destroyer capable of operating independently or in company with amphibious or carrier groups. Her primary mission is to operate offensively in an Anti-Submarine Warfare role. JOHN YOUNG ' s sonar is fully integrated into a Naval Tactical Data System, providing the ship with faster and more accurate processing of target information. Integration of the ship ' s digital gunfire system in the NTDS provides quick reaction in the perform- ance of the ship ' s mission areas of shore bombardment, surface warfare actions, and anti-aircraft warfare. In her 10 years of active service USS JOHN YOUNG has participated in 4 Western Pacific Indian Ocean deploy- ments, 5 RIMPAC exercises, rescued 255 political refugees from the waters of the South China Sea, and conducted combat operations against the Ras Hadat Oil Platforms in the Arabian Gulf. USS JOHN YOUNG has recently been awarded the Battle Efficiency ' E ' from Commander, Destroyer Squadron Seven and was selected as Runner Up for the COMNAVSURFPAC Anti-Submarine Warfare Ship of the Year Award. A destroyer is a lovely ship, probably the nicest fighting ship of all Battleships are a little like steel cities or great factories of destruction. Aircraft Carriers are floating flying fields. Even Cruisers are big pieces of machinery, but a Destroyer is all boat. In the beautiful, clean lines of her, in her speed and roughness, in curious gallantry, she is completely a ship, in the old sense. - John Steinbeck
