One of the Fletcher-class destroyers. In June 1944, this ship participated in the battle of The Marianas. During the battle of Okinawa in 1945, on the duty of radar picket frigate, she was hit by two kamikaze planes, and had to go back to the mainland for repair. The war was won while it was repairing. The ship was reserved in 1951 and participated in the Caribbean and Mediterranean activities, and after 1955, came back to the Pacific Ocean. In 1964, the ship was involved in a movie, and then transferred to the A-Navy in 1971.
Named after William Anthony.
