 USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) Details

USS John S. McCain (DDG-56)
USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy. She is part of the Seventh Fleet, and she has her homeport at the Yokosuka Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan.

This warship is named after John S. McCain, Sr., and John S. McCain, Jr., both Admirals in the United States Navy. John S. McCain, Sr., commanded the aircraft carrier Ranger (CV-4), and acted as commander of the Fast Carrier Task Force during the latter stages of World War II. John S. McCain, Jr., commanded the U.S. Navy submarines USS Gunnel and USS Dentuda during World War II. Subsequently he held a number of posts, rising to Commander-in-Chief of the United States Pacific Command before retiring in 1972. These men were the grandfather and father of John S. McCain III, former naval aviator captain, a U.S. Senator representing the state of Arizona, and the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2008 election.

John S. McCain's keel was laid down on 3 September 1991, at the Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine. The ship was launched on 26 September 1992, sponsored by Cindy McCain, the wife of Senator John McCain. McCain was commissioned on 2 July 1994, at the Bath Iron Works. The former President of the United States, George H. W. Bush, was the ceremony's principal speaker.

The ship was initially assigned a home port of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and shifted to a forward-deploy port in Yokosuka, Japan in 1997.

In January 2003, John S. McCain deployed to the Persian Gulf. She launched 39 TLAMs in support of the invasion of Iraq and was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation for her service. She is cited by John Keegan in "The Invasion of Iraq"" as having fired the first shots of that war, though many dispute this claim. John S. McCain was awarded the Navy Battle E for DESRON 15 in 2003 and again in 2004.

On 16 February 2007, John S. McCain was awarded the 2006 Battle "E" award.

On 11 June 2009, a Chinese submarine reportedly collided with the towed sonar array of the John S. McCain near Subic Bay, the Philippines. The incident caused damage to the array but was described as an "inadvertent encounter".

In June 2009, John S. McCain pursued the North Korean cargo ship Kang Nam 1 toward Burma in enforcement of the new United Nations resolution of an arms export embargo against North Korea. The vessel was suspected of carrying arms for the Burmese junta government. The Kang Nam 1 returned to North Korea without delivering its cargo to Burma.

In July 2009, the destroyer berthed at Yokohama's international passenger terminal on a goodwill tour. The ship was opened to the public on 22 July 2009.

In March 2011, in company with the carrier Ronald Reagan, the ship was deployed off northeastern Honshu, Japan to assist with relief efforts after the 2011 T'hoku earthquake. During that time, the ship may have been exposed to leaking radiation from the Fukushima I nuclear accidents.

In April 2013, the USS McCain was sent to Korea during escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.
