USS Gonzalez

A humbling gift from reader Tim.

USS Gonzalez (DDG-66) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy. She is named for Sergeant Alfredo Cantu Gonzalez, a Medal of Honor recipient in the Vietnam War.

You can go check her specs here. I have to say that as a gun guy I am a fan of the MK 15 Phalanx Close-In Weapons System, but I find the fact that you can shoot torpedoes from the deck via two MK 32 MOD 14 Triple Torpedo Tubes, makes me giggle like a six-year-old.

Hey, so I am a fan of PT Boats since I watched They Were Expendable many moons ago. Torpedoes launched from decks of ships have a high-ranking in the cool scale, at least in my mind.

Tim, thank you very much for the cap.
