Ahoy!  Welcome to the USS Rowan (DD 782) 1971-73 Volunteer Crew Website. It belongs to all of us who served and fought in Rowan during the extended deployment in the waters off both North & South Vietnam. During this time we saw more action in fifteen months than most sailors see in a lifetime. We steamed within yards of the North Vietnamese coast and battled  the defense artillery, we raided their main port of Haiphong, engaging two attacking missile boats-exploding one and crippling the other, and we answered the call of the Marines and Soldiers needing NGFS. As a result of this Rowan was awarded the Meritorious Unit Citation.
Again, this is OUR site.
CONTRIBUTE TO IT!
