U.S. Navy celebrates 241st birthday

PEARL HARBOR (HawaiiNewsNow) - Known among its crew members as 'Hawaii's Destroyer', the U.S.S. Chung-Hoon has been through its share of battles.  With historical ties to Pearl Harbor and World War II, the Chung-Hoon will also be participating in the  75th commemoration of Pearl Harbor as well as the 75th anniversary of Battle of Midway happening next spring.

Named after Waianae native and Navy Admiral Gordon Pai'ea Chung-Hoon, the ship was part of the Great Green Fleet during the international RIMPAC exercises held in the waters off Oahu earlier this year.
