    USS Johnston found after 77 yrs.

    The hero destroyer USS Johnston was found after 77yrs on the bottom of Leyte gulf. The Fletcher class destroyer scarified herself against a Japanese fleet to protect Gen MacArthurís landing in the Philippians islands. If you havenít heard of the Johnston, you should. Her Commander Evans & Crew should never be forgotten.

    She had an amazing record in combat and fought to the end. Her skipper was a man of steel.
    Salute and RIP sailors. Fair winds and following seas on eternal patrol.

    Yes, the Kidd is Fletcher Class. It is the only surviving Fletcher Class Destroyer to be restored to its WWII condition. The other three remaining Fletcher class DDs preserved as museum ships still have vestiges of their postwar upgrades.
