      1. DDG 93 | USS CHUNG-HOON

        DDG 93

        Namesake:

        Rear Admiral Gordon Pai'ea Chung-Hoon

        Rear Admiral Gordon Pai'ea Chung-Hoon was born on July 25, 1910, in Honolulu, Hawaii. The second youngest of five Chung-Hoon children, he attended the U.S. Naval Academy and graduated in May 1934. While at the Naval Academy, he was a valued member of the Navy Football team.

        Rear Admiral Chung-Hoon is a recipient of the Navy Cross and Silver Star for conspicuous gallantry and extraordinary heroism as Commanding Officer of USS Sigsbee (DD 502) from May 1944 to October 1945. In the spring of 1945, Sigsbee assisted in the destruction of 20 enemy planes while screening a carrier strike force off the Japanese island of Kyushu. On April 14, 1945, while on radar picket station off Okinawa, a kamikaze crashed into Sigsbee, reducing her starboard engine to five knots and knocking out the ship's port engine and steering control. Despite the damage, Admiral Chung-Hoon, then a Commander, valiantly kept his anti-aircraft batteries delivering "prolonged and effective fire" against the continuing enemy air attack while simultaneously directing the damage control efforts that allowed Sigsbee to make port under her own power.

        After retiring from the Navy in 1959, Rear Admiral Chung-Hoon was appointed by William Quinn, Hawaii’s first elected governor since statehood, to serve as director of the state Department of Agriculture. Rear Admiral Chung-Hoon died in July 1979.

        The Shield: Dark blue and gold are colors traditionally used by the Navy and recall the sea and excellence. Red is the color of zeal, courage and sacrifice. The trident and three tines represent maritime dominance from the combination of air, surface and undersea warfare technologies into a single AEGIS platform. The octagon shield shape alludes to the AEGIS configuration on a DDG. The ship's namesake honors Navy Rear Admiral Gordon P. Chung-Hoon, recipient of the Navy Cross and Silver Star, for his conspicuous gallantry and extraordinary heroism as Commanding Officer of the Sigsbee, DD 502. He valiantly kept his antiaircraft batteries delivering effective fire in the face of catastrophic damage by a Kamikaze.

        The Crest: The Hawaiian warrior helmet refers to Hawaii, Rear Admiral Chung-Hoon's birthplace, and emphasizes the fighting spirit. The anchor commemorates his distinguished Navy career. The palm wreath symbolizes victory and the triumph of the human spirit

        Motto: " Imua e na Koa Kai" (Hawaiian for "Go Forward Sea Warriors")
