    The US Sea Shadow.....The Navy never Commissioned her. But she was the first Prototype for Stealth Tech with our Ships. I believe some of our Destroyers employ Stealth tech.

    USS JOHN C. STENNIS comes alongside the USS INDEPENDENCE (CV 62) March 30, 1998, in the Arabian Gulf where both ships were deployed in support of UN-mandated sanctions against Iraq and enforcement of the "No-Fly Zone" under OPERATION SOUTHERN WATCH.

    USS JOHN C. STENNIS is 1,092 feet long and towers some 20 stories above the waterline. As a self-contained city, JOHN C. STENNIS has virtually the same amenities as any American city with a comparable population. It has a daily newspaper, radio and television stations, fire department, library, hospital, general store, laundry, two barbershops and even a post office with its own zip code.....snip~

    USS Kidd (DDG-100) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy. She is the third Navy ship named after Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd, who was on board Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor, and was the first American flag officer to die in World War II.
    Kidd was christened on 22 January 2005 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Commander Richard E. Thomas of Westwood, New Jersey, served as her first Commanding Officer until February 2008. Commander Charles P. Good of Huntington Beach, California, will take Kidd on her maiden deployment.
    The ship was damaged at the shipyard docks during Hurricane Katrina on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, requiring a return to the dry dock for repairs, delaying her commissioning and deployment with the Navy. She was commissioned in Galveston, Texas on June 9, 2007. She is currently homeported in San Diego, California.
    On January 5, 2012, the Kidd rescued the 13-member crew crew of an Iranian-flagged fishing vessel, the Al Molai, from Somali pirates who had been holding them hostage for over 40 days, capturing 15 pirates in the process with no casualties.....snip~

    The USS Milius (DDG-69) is an Arleigh Burke-class Aegis guided missile destroyer of the United States Navy. Her namesake is Commander Paul L. Milius (1928-1968) of U.S. Navy squadron VO-67. His aircraft was hit over Laos in 1968 and he ordered his crew to bail out. Although he exited his aircraft, he was never recovered. Commander Milius received the Navy Cross in 1968.
    The motto of the ship is "Alii Prae Me" (Others before me).
    In January 2005, she participated in Operation Unified Assistance. On 6 December 2006, the ship successfully launched a Block IV Tomahawk cruise missile for the first time in a test of the Block IV configuration. The launch took place in the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division Sea Test Range off of California. The missile flew 869 miles before impacting its target on the land range at China Lake, California.[1]
    On 12 September 2007, the U.S. embassy in the Philippines stated that the arrival of the missile destroyers USS Chung-Hoon and USS Milius was a goodwill visit to strengthen ties between the U.S. and the Philippines.....snip~
