Story by NSAW Public Affairs

The decommissioned destroyer ex-USS Barry (DD 933) is expected to be removed in 2015 from the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., for complete dismantling and recycling.

The Display Ship Barry must be removed before construction begins in October 2015 on the new Frederick Douglass Memorial Bridge, which is a fixed span that otherwise would land-lock the ship. 

USS Barry was decommissioned on November 5, 1982 and began its new career as a permanent public display ship in 1984.  It has been used for training and shipboard familiarization, and as a ceremonial platform.  After 30 years as the permanent display ship at the Washington Navy Yard and ineligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, the DS Barry will be designated for disposal.

USS Barry was the third Forrest Sherman-class destroyer built and the fourth vessel to bear the name of the illustrious Revolutionary War naval hero, Commodore John Barry.  Commissioned on September 7, 1956, Barry served 26 years in the Atlantic and Pacific Fleet.  Barry supported the 1958 Marine and Army airborne unit landing in Beirut, Lebanon.  In 1962, it was a member of the task force that quarantined Cuba in response to evidence that Soviet missiles had been installed on the island.  In Vietnam, the destroyer operated in the Mekong Delta and supported Operation Double Eagle, the largest amphibious operation since the landings in Korea.  Barry was credited with destroying more than 1,000 enemy structures, and for its service in the Vietnam conflict Barry earned two battle stars.  In the early 1970s it was homeported in Athens, Greece, as part of the Navy's forward deployment program.
