This U.S. Navy destroyer was named after Commodore Lawrence Kearny. Commodore Kearny served in the U.S.N from 1807 until his retirement on 29 November 1861. The Kearny (DD-432) was launched 9 March 1940 and commissioned on 13 September 1940. Kearny was on escort duty on the North Atlantic, during October 1941, when her convoy was attacked by a German submarine. On 17 October the Kearny was struck by a German torpedo that damaged the forward fire room. Kearny survived the attack but lost 11 of her crew.  After repairs Kearny spent most of WW II serving as an escort vessel for Atlantic convoys. The ship was a member of the Gleaves class. This photograph is undated but it appears to have been taken shortly after entering service. This photograph is from the I.N.R.O. archives and is © Associated Press.
