Joseph P Kennedy JR (DD-850)

Fall River MA

Moored next to the USS Massachusetts pictured in this blog yesterday is the destroyer, Joseph P Kennedy Jr, named after the older brother of President John F Kennedy.  She was built in 1945 and was in service from then until 1973, most notably during the Cuban Missile Crisis,  as well as during recovery duties for both Gemini 6 and 7 missions.  She is currently one of the attractions of "Battleship Cove" in Fall River.
