Congratulations on your orders to USS HALYBURTON (FFG 40). Welcome aboard the finest frigate in the Atlantic Fleet!
HALYBURTON is the 34th ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry class of guided missile frigates. She is a multi-mission platform capable of performing maritime interdiction operations and counter Narco-terrorism operations as well as air, surface, and undersea warfare. She is named for Pharmacist’s Mate Second Class William David Halyburton, Jr., who was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for heroism on Okinawa during World War II.
Training, teamwork, and execution determine HALYBURTON’s success in everything we do. From the newest Recruit to the Captain, we must all work together to be successful. We live by our motto, “Not for self but for Country.”
CDR Bertram C. Hodge, USN
