USS Kidd Arrives in San Diego

Monday, July 23, 2007
The Northrop Grumman Corporation-built Aegis guided missile destroyer USS Kidd (DDG 100) arrived at her homeport here at Naval Station San Diego on July 19. The ship is named in honor of Rear Adm. Isaac Campbell Kidd (1884-1941) who died directing defenses against the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in 1941.

The ship, commissioned last month in Galveston, Texas, is the 24th Aegis guided missile destroyer built by the company's Ship Systems sector in Pascagoula, Miss. She is a survivor of Hurricane Katrina and has received many accolades from industry and Navy officials since her return from a damaged hull during the nation's worst natural disaster.

During Hurricane Katrina, Northrop Grumman employees fought bravely to defend DDG 100 against the onslaught of water to keep her afloat. The ship was saved, but flooding made a complete refurbishment of the affected compartments necessary. The ship was restored, and following her super trials in the Gulf of Mexico last fall, the U.S. Navy offered great reviews and acknowledged the ship performed well.
