Christening of Jack H. Lucas (DDG 125)

Watch the playback of the livestream below


DDG 125 is named for Jacklyn “Jack” H. Lucas (February 14, 1928 – June 5, 2008), the youngest servicemember to be awarded the Medal of Honor in World War II. He earned the United States’ highest military decoration for valor for his actions during the Battle of Iwo Jima. During a close firefight with 11 Japanese soldiers, Lucas saved the lives of three Marines when two enemy grenades landed in the trench they occupied. Lucas unhesitatingly placed himself on one grenade, and without flinching, pulled the second grenade under his body. Read more about this heroic namesake.
