The history of the USS BLACK (DD-666) begins in 1943 during World War II. From the Marshall Islands southwest to Western New Guinea and north to Japan proper, the BLACK was one of the many destroyers that did everything from delivering mail to bombarding the enemy's homeland. The end of the war found her on occupation missions in Japanese waters. For a short time after WWII the BLACK was decommissioned but soon the BLACK was needed again for the Korean War and later for the War in Vietnam. The BLACK continued to serve with honor until she was eventually retired and cut-up for scrap in 1971. Read full history here.
