On March 22, year 2000 at the Naval Heritage Center in Washington, DC, the USS Daly Memorial Plague was dedicated in a ceremony hosted by Admiral McKinney.  The Admiral, who spent part of his naval career on a Fletcher Class Destroyer then, introduced Captain Bradley, one of the former “skippers” of the USS Daly during WWII. The highlight of this solemn ceremony was Captain Bradley’s reading of the names of those who lost their lives while serving on the ship. Adrian Schultz accompanied this with the ringing of the ship’s bell for each name. A total of 31 guests attended the ceremony.
