Walk the decks of a retired naval destroyer ship, where brave men and women made history during some of the most dramatic military battles in U.S. history.

The "Pirate of the Pacific" is the centerpiece of the USS Kidd Veterans Memorial & Museum, a moving collection of wartime artifacts that provide a glimpse into the lives of those who gave it all for the freedom we enjoy today.
