USS MULLINNIX DD-944

    SHIP HISTORY    



"Destroyers – 'Tin Cans' as they are affectionately called by those who man them – are the busybodies of the fleet. Always looking for trouble – generally finding it. Proud little ships because they bear the names of great heroes of the service and keep alive the fighting traditions of our Navy.

These ships have to be built sweet, built tight, men are going to be fighting from these decks. They’re not 'its', they are 'shes'. They curve in the right places, wear a coat of paint, and they squawk loud in an argument.

They are a hunk of steel, paint, rivets, then they slide into the water and get a name. A crew will come swarming over her gangway like blood running into her veins. She’ll throb, she’ll breath, she’ll be alive. Yea, she’ll be stubborn, tricky, temperamental at times – a woman.

Just look at her, personality, class..."

Edward G. Robinson
Opening scene of the movie "Destroyer"

Mullinnix, South Vietnam Gunline - 1966

Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the LORD on high is mighty!
Psalm 93:4
