Commander, Destroyer Squadron TWO


Destroyer Squadron Two (DesRon 2) was formed as part of the Atlantic Fleet in May 1919, making it the longest serving destroyer squadron in the U.S. naval service. ‘Second to None’ the many ships and sailors of DesRon 2 have participated in almost every major U.S. Navy combat operation since WWII. Although this chronology is primarily focused on detailing DesRon 2’s major combat related events it also highlights several other significant ‘real world’ operations that the squadron’s ships have been involved in. The events identified in this chronology represent a mixture of operations performed either by the squadron as a whole or individual ships attached to it. Notwithstanding, this chronology does not necessarily represent an exhaustive accounting of all actions performed by every individual ship that has been attached to the squadron during its long period of active service and may further be limited by instances of classified information.
