US Navy Destroyers are world famous and one of the most famous is the USS Arleigh Burke.  Named after Admiral Arleigh Albert Burke, this ship has the distinction of leading the Arleigh Burke class of US Navy Destroyers which are guided missile destroyers. Built in Bath Maine in 1988, the destroyer’s designers used lessons learned from the UK Navy during the Falkland Campaigns.
