USCGC Midgett (WHEC-726) Model

My ship.  USS Conyngham DDG-17.  Adams class destroyer (guided missile).  I served aboard her from 1985-89.  She caught fire and burned at sea in 1990.  The crew managed to get her back to port but she was decommissioned immediately, sold for scrap and torn down in 1994.  In my mind's eye, however, she's still out there sailing.

The Liberty Ship was a cargo ship made to a standard for rapid construction during WW2. The US made 2751 such ships during the war, up to 4 a day. They were built on a design from 1879 scaled up for modern use & carried 10,000 tons, the workhorse of the Navy. After the war, they were sold off, primarily to Greece. Two ships remain operational, the John Brown & Jeremiah O'brien, the latter sailing from San Diego to Normandy in 1994, the last original ship from the D-Day invasion in existence.
