USS CARR (FFG-52) O.H. Perry class in service 1985 to 2013

 

Operation Earnest Will
 
Carr's original homeport was in Charleston, South Carolina. Her first operational deployment was to the Persian Gulf, where Carr was involved in Operation Earnest Will, escorting re-flagged oil tankers through the Strait of Hormuz. While Commander, Destroyer Squadron 14, was the senior officer present, Commander Wade C. Johnson, the captain of Carr, was the next senior officer in the area and was routinely assigned the duties of Convoy Commander during escort missions. During one of these, Iranian small boats approached the tankers and were chased off by bullets from Carr's deck-mounted M2 .50-caliber machine guns and the Bushmaster 25mm chain gun on the starboard main deck.

USS JACK WILLIAMS (FFG-24)  O.H. Perry class short hull guided missile frigate in service 1981 to 1996.  Now part of the Bahrainian Navy
 
Jack Williams was born in Harrison, Ark. on 18 October 1924 and enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserve in June 1943. He received recruit training at Naval Training Station, San Diego, Cal. and was promoted to Seaman, Second Class in July 1943. Williams completed Hospital Corps training at Naval Hospital, San Diego and his rating was changed to Hospital Apprentice that September. In November, he was promoted to Hospital Apprentice First Class. In January 1944, Williams received orders to the Field Medical School Battalion, Camp Elliott, San Diego, and transferred a few months later to Headquarters, Fifth Marine Division at Camp Pendleton, Cal. In May 1944, Williams was promoted to Pharmacist's Mate, Third Class. With the Third Battalion, Twenty-eighth Marines, Fifth Marine Division, he participated in the Battle of Iwo Jima. On 3 March 1945, when a Marine was wounded forward of the front lines, Williams courageously went to assist him and was hit by enemy fire. With determination, he completed his mission of mercy, dressed his own wounds, and rendered aid to another fallen Marine. On his way back to the rear, Williams was hit by an enemy sniper and died later that day. For his actions that day he was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. Jack Williams is buried at Springfield National Cemetery, Springfield Mo.
 
USS Jack Williams (FFG 24) was the first ship to be named in his honor.          (photo from FFG 24 Launch Pamphlet)
