So I have already covered the big ship now its time to address the little ones. First up is the fleets AA protection an Atlanta-class Cruiser.
USS Juneau which sank after the Naval battle of Guadalcanal. When I was a little kid (and couldn't stay up to see the end) I thought the family in "The Fighting Sullivans" was my grandfathers (my grandfather Joe Sullivan was a SeaBee and survived the war) and even though its not I still feel drawn to that tragic story.
Fletcher-Class Destroyers and 4 Benson-Class destroyer. US Admirals used Destroyers as interchangeable parts even though capability varied greatly from one to another. I will do the same with more excuse naming this Fletcher or Benson 1-4.
