adamsBring Home the Adams!

The former USS CHARLES F. ADAMS DDG-2, the last surviving ship of the Adams Class guided missile destroyers, was the first guided missile destroyer built from the keel up by the U.S. Navy as a guided missile ship. This heralded a new age of U.S. Navy ships with advanced guided missile weapons systems. The USS CHARLES F. ADAMS revolutionized naval warfare from two aspects, anti-air warfare and anti-submarine warfare.

The vision of the former USS CHARLES F. ADAMS (DDG-2) being put on display as a Naval ship museum, representing the ADAMS class of guided missile destroyers, began with the sailors who served in these fine ships, but it has now also become the vision of many former Navy-men and numerous residents of the Jacksonville, Florida area. That vision sees a lasting and fitting memorial being established to honor all veterans, but especially paying tribute to the crewmen who served in this special class of warship.
