Pretty sure this is "Pete", aka Peg Leg Pete, nemesis and antagonist of Mickey Mouse in the early days.

 

USS DAMATO (DDE-871) Gearing class destroyer in service 1946 to 1980

 

The Damato also used Donald Duck on their emblems and ships' lighters

Unfortunately this is not Pete. Looks more like a brown bear. I have no record of this unit having a Disney insignia in my database of 1,100 entries. Doesnt mean they didnt have one but I have nothing for this unit and the design is off for Pete.

It's clearly 'beari-ish'.  Could be a poor (rip-off) rendition of Pete and certainly unofficial, not surprised that it would not be in your database Dave.

 

Here's a web photo of their Donald Duck lighter in the same sailor suit and pose from Navsource
