The USS Barry's previous incarnation (DD-933) was part of our destroyer squadron in the early to mid-70's, homeported in Elefsina, Greece. Interesting to see that the mission hasn't changed much, 40 years later.

That is one thing you got to love about the Navy, and the military in general, history and tradition. I will email you a photo of your USS Barry.

Thank you for your service my friend.
