USS Truxtun (DDG 103)


The five stars symbolize the previous five ships named Truxtun. The silhouette of the frigate, USS Constellation, recalls Commodore Thomas Truxtun and his command of the ship during the American Revolution and Quasi-War. The AEGIS shield represents the Navy's premier combat systems suite and its ability to protect ship from any threat. Combined with the anchor and USS Constellation, it highlights the proud history and current progress of U.S. Navy warships.

The missiles shown are the SM-2, Tomahawk, and ASROC missiles, representing the ship's multi-mission platform at sea, land, and air. The trident represents the ship's maritime nature and warfighting nature at sea. The cutlass and sword crossed represent the enlisted and officer members of the ship's crew, working together to complete the mission.  |  |  Navy FOIA  |  DoD Accessibility/Section 508  |  No Fear Act   |  Open Government  |  Plain Writing Act  |  Veterans Crisis Line  |  VA Vet Center  |  FVAP  |  DoD Safe Helpline  |  Navy SAPR  |  NCIS Tips  |  Privacy Policy  |  Site Map  |  Contact Us   |  988 Helpline
