For six action-filled years, the USS Russell, a World War Two destroyer was in the thick of combat. From the pre-Pearl Harbor Battle of the Atlantic to most of the Naval battles in the Pacific, Russell and her gallant crew fought a determined enemy. After earning sixteen battle stars, she brought the warriors who manned her guns and engines home alive.
The Russell was a SURVIVOR.
