DESRON DESDIV Destroyer Squadrons & Divisions

Recommended Posts

While not DESRON I think Cruiser Destroyer groups and Flotilla's fit in this topic, so I will add a few.

First up Cruiser Destroyer Flotilla 8

I too really enjoy the USN & USMC patches, although am not ready to "jump in" to that arena. :)

Destroyer Squadron 21 is really cool.

This was my Fathers, while serving on USS Perkins DD-877 in 1961. Believe it to be Japanese made

This was my DESRON 13 patch while serving in USS Bradley, FF-1041 from '75-'79 Not as nice as my Dads, and bought in the ships store, Do not remember what brand, most likely Gemsco. As I recal, they supplied pretty much all ships jacket patches then.

here is a great pair East Coast (26) and West Coast (31) The " Mod Squad" label was given during the Zumwalt reign as CNO these two DESRONS had officers assigned to CO and XO positions who were a pay grade below what the normal pay grade for that billet would have been, so if a DE's CO normally would have been a Commander a Mod Squad CO would be a LT Commander. The thought was to give junior officers more leadership responsibility. These are the sellers pictures I don't have them in hand yet.
