USS Turner Joy (DD-951)
USS Turner Joy docked at the Bremerton Marina
Built by the Puget Sound Bridge & Dredging Company in 1957 and commissioned into service by Commander Ralph S. Wentworth in 1959. The Forrest Sherman Class Destroyer served the United States Navy for 23 years mainly in the Pacific Rim Theater. The USS Turner Joy gained national attention in August of 1964, when she was attacked by North Vietnamese patrol boats in the Gulf of Tonkin. The incident led the US Government to step up its involvement in the Vietnam War. 
9 years later when America ended its role in Vietnam it was USS Turner Joy's 5 inch main guns that volleyed the United States Navy last naval rounds into Vietnam.
