USS Whipple (DD-15)

Turd F.
This is my rendition of a ship similar to the USS Whipple. The Whipple was a destroyer belonging to the Truxton class and was commissioned from February 17, 1903 to September 5, 1905. She sailed with the Great White Fleet from 1907 - 1909 in the Torpedo Flotilla and patrolled the waters off of Mexico from 1914 to 1916, earning the Mexican Service Star in the process. During WWI, the Whipple took part in anti-submarine patrols and escorty duty for large convoys. On April 17, 1918, she, along with the Stewart and Truxtun, aided and rescued 33 survivors after the munitions ship Florence H exploded off Quiberon Bay. #1903 #destroyer #Great_White_Fleet #navy #steel #Torpedo_Flotilla #USS #Whipple #WWI
