USS Kidd (DD-661) - 1986

USS Kidd (DD-661), a Fletcher-class destroyer, was the first ship of the United States Navy to be named after Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd, who died on the bridge of his flagship USS Arizona during the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. On this image it's floating on the shore of Mississippi river in Baton Rouge, the "Horace Wilkinson Bridge" is in the background. To be clear, I'm a convinced pacifist.

So many thanks for the interesting link, Marko! Unfortunately there was no chance to go on board when I was in Rijeka.

Das Schiff hat wohl gerade zu wenig zerstörende Munition geladen, daher die viele Luft unter dem Bug...
Die Wolkenstimmung ist großartig und passend...
