USS is an Kidd (DDG-100) Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy. She is the third Navy ship named after Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd, who was on board during the Arizona attack on Pearl Harbor, and was the first American flag officer to die in World War II. The ship is part of Destroyer Squadron Twenty-one (DESRON-21) of Carrier Strike Group Three which is currently headed by the Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS . John C. Stennis (CVN-74)
Overview [ edit ]
Kidd was christened on 22 January 2005 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Commander Richard E. Thomas of Westwood, New Jersey, served as her first commanding officer until February 2008. Commander Charles P. Good of Huntington Beach, California, took Kidd on her maiden deployment.
While in the midst of final outfitting, the ship was holed and partially flooded at the shipyard docks during
Hurricane Katrina on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, requiring a return to dry dock for repairs,which included cutting out a turbine, delaying her commissioning and deployment with the navy. She was commissioned in Galveston, Texas on 9 June 2007. She is currently homeported in San Diego.
On 5 January 2012, the
Kidd rescued the 13-member crew of an Iranian-flagged fishing vessel, the Al Molai, from Somali pirates who had been holding them hostage for over 40 days, capturing fifteen pirates in the process with no casualties. [1 ]
Search for Malaysia Airlines MH 370 [ edit ]
On 10 March 2014 the ship joined the search for
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 two days after it went missing over the South China Sea. The Kidd was the second Navy ship to be deployed in the search. It joined USS , and more than 40 other ships and 32 aircraft from Pinckney Malaysia, Australia, China, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, [2 ] Vietnam, New Zealand, and the Philippines taking part in the search and rescue . On March 14 it was announced that Kidd would be relocated to the Indian Ocean in search of the plane, since new evidence points to the possibility of the plane being there. [3 ] [4 ]

In popular culture [ edit ]
In the 2009 science fiction film
, the USS Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Kidd fires at and destroys a Decepticon named Devastator with a railgun (mounted in place of the standard cannon) during the movie's climactic battle in Egypt. Moments earlier in the film the captain of the USS John C. Stennis queues the USS Kidd into action but the hull of the (DDG-88) is shown instead. The footage of the combat information center and the forecastle with the railgun was shot on the USS Kidd. USS Preble
