Two U.S. warships have been named for the city in Northwestern Ohio.
Construction of the first USS Toledo (CA 133), a Baltimore class heavy cruiser, began when the United States was in the midst of World War II. The cruiser's keel was laid at the New York Shipbuilding Corporation, Camden, N.J., Sept. 13, 1943, only four days after American forces invaded Italy. It was launched May 6, 1945, the day before Germany surrendered. The cruiser was moved to the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard for its commissioning Oct. 27, 1946, 14 months after Japan surrendered.
The cruiser completed 12 deployments to the Western Pacific during its career. Most of these were after the Korean War and consisted of training operations and goodwill tours.
Toledo was placed out of commission May 21, 1960, and went into storage as a reserve ship for 14 years. The proud cruiser was sold to National Metal and Scrap Corporation Oct. 30, 1974.
