It is time to begin manning USS Delbert Black (DDG 119) and we are looking for our Navy's best and brightest talent to join the team that will set the watch and man the rails. The first wave of crewmembers will begin arriving in April 2018 and will continue arriving through July of 2020. For those potentially reporting in the early manning phases – NOW is the time for action, decision, and dialogue with your Detailer!
Delbert Black will be 513 feet long and 66 feet wide and with a displacement of approximately 9,200 tons. Her propulsion system will drive it to speeds in excess of 30 knots, and she will accommodate a crew size of 304 Sailors. She will use a gas-turbine propulsion plant and Integrated Power System. Delbert Black will make use of the latest technology and weapon systems. This will be no ordinary ship and that's why we seek EXTRAORDINARY Sailors to be a part of something special.
Despite all of the capability of the ship, the difference maker will be our PEOPLE! As you consider your next assignment, please consider joining the crew of USS Delbert Black (DDG 119). We promise you that you will enjoy a challenging and fulfilling tour, which will inevitably enhance your career for years to come.
