The future USS Delbert D. Black (DDG-119) is the first ship to bear the name of a Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) and is named for the first person to hold that office. Black began his 30-year Navy career in the spring of 1941. After completing recruit training, he reported to his first assignment, USS Maryland (BB-46) in Pearl Harbor, where he witnessed the Japanese attack that drew the United States into World War II. Over the next 26 years, he rose through the ranks to Gunner’s Mate Master Chief before his selection in 1967 to serve as the first MCPON. The MCPON is the senior enlisted leader in the Navy and serves as an advisor to the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and to the Chief of Naval Personnel (CNP) in matters dealing with enlisted Sailors and their families.

MCPON Steven S. Giordano, 14th and current Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy, served as the principal speaker during the ceremony. During the event, Mrs. Ima Black, MCPON Black’s widow and a World War II Navy veteran herself, served as the ship’s sponsor and broke a bottle of sparkling wine across the bow to formally christen the ship, a time-honored Navy tradition.

«It is a fitting tribute to the master chief who set the tone for all of us to follow as authentic, competent and courageous leaders», Giordano said. «This ship represents the enlisted force perhaps more than any other ship in the Navy».

USS Delbert D. Black (DDG-119) will be the 69th Arleigh Burke-class destroyer and is currently the fifth of 13 ships currently under contract for the DDG-51 program. The ship will be configured as a Flight IIA destroyer, which enables power projection, forward presence and escort operations at sea in support of low intensity conflict/coastal and littoral offshore warfare, as well as open ocean conflict.

USS Delbert D. Black (DDG-119) will be equipped with the Navy’s Aegis Combat System, the world’s foremost integrated naval weapon. The ship will also incorporate Cooperative Engagement Capability that when combined with the Aegis Combat System, will permit groups of ships and aircraft to link radars to provide a composite picture of the battle space-effectively increasing the theater space. The capability is designed to provide the U.S. Navy with a 21st Century fighting edge.

The nearly 9,500-ton Delbert D. Black is 510 feet/156 m in length, has a waterline beam of 59 feet/18 m and a navigational draft of 30.5 feet/9.3 m. Four gas turbine engines will power the ship to speeds in excess of 30 knots/34.5 mph/55.5 km/h.

The process of launching a ship is a multi-day process that includes moving the ship from the land level facility to the dry dock which is then slowly flooded until the ship is afloat. With the ship in the water, final outfitting and production can commence.

«Production efforts on our Arleigh Burke class destroyers remain strong», said Captain Casey Moton, DDG-51 class program manager, Program Executive Office (PEO) Ships. «With four DDG-51 class ships currently in the water and in route to delivery, the program is in serial production and leveraging production efficiencies».

The ship is being configured as a Flight IIA destroyer, which enables power projection, forward presence, and escort operations at sea in support of Low Intensity Conflict/Coastal and Littoral Offshore Warfare as well as open ocean conflict. USS Delbert D. Black (DDG-119) will be equipped with the Navy’s Aegis Combat System, the world’s foremost integrated naval weapon.

The ship will also incorporate Cooperative Engagement Capability. When combined with the Aegis Combat System, it will permit groups of ships and aircraft to link their radars to provide a composite picture of the battle space, effectively increasing the theater space. The capability is designed to provide the U.S. Navy with a 21st century fighting edge.

HII’s Pascagoula shipyard is also currently in production on the future destroyers USS Ralph Johnson (DDG-114), USS Paul Ignatius (DDG-117), USS Frank E. Petersen Jr (DDG-121) and USS Lenah H. Sutcliffe Higbee (DDG-123). HII is also under contract for one additional ship, USS Jack H. Lucas (DDG-125), awarded as part of the five-ship multi-year procurement for fiscal years 2013-2017and will be the first ship to be configured in the FLT III design.

Keel Authenticated

Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (HII) Ingalls Shipbuilding division authenticated the keel of the destroyer USS Delbert D. Black (DDG-119) on June 01. The ship, named in honor of the first Master Chief Petty Officer of the U.S. Navy, will be the 32nd Arleigh Burke-class (DDG-51) guided missile destroyer Ingalls has built for the U.S. Navy.

«This ship’s name carries a special meaning», Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias said at this morning’s keel-laying ceremony. «Destroyers are traditionally named after great men and women in the history of our Navy, and the namesake of DDG-119 is no exception. DDG-119 will be strong and capable. She can be no other way, because our men and women in the Navy and Delbert Black’s legacy deserve nothing less».

Black served as a gunner’s mate in the U.S. Navy and was aboard the battleship USS Maryland (BB-46) during the attack on Pearl Harbor. His wife, Ima, is the ship’s sponsor. «To the shipbuilders, thank you so much for your love and your care in building my ship», she said. «My message to you is the same as always: ‘Hurry up! I’m running out of time.’ There is a saying that we have in the Navy», she continued. «That saying is: ‘Carry on.’ Carry on, according to the Navy Blue Jackets manual, means to resume your duties. Sometimes it happens in the stillness of the night. I can hear the faint whisper of a voice in my ear saying, ‘Carry on. Carry on.’»

Delbert and Ima Black met after World War II, during which she served as a Navy WAVE (Women Accepted for Voluntary Emergency Service). They were married 50 years until the time of his death in 2000.

She and 45-year shipbuilder Earnest Wiley penned their initials onto a keel plate, and they were welded for permanent display on the ship by CC Tanner, a structural welder at Ingalls.

«Today Mrs. Black and Mr. Wiley create a sign that will stay with this ship throughout its service», said Captain Mark Vandroff, program manager of the Navy’s DDG-51 program. «It will inspire us today and eventually inspire the future sailors of Delbert D. Black».

The current Master Chief Petty Officer of the U.S. Navy, Mike Stevens, also spoke at the ceremony. «We are here today for the laying of the keel, which is a tradition going back centuries and marks a milestone in the life of any ship», he said. «The entire foundation of the ship is built around the keel, just as the foundation for today’s enlisted force was built in part around the leadership of Del Black. I once read that ‘Legacy is the lantern that lights the path for others to follow.’ It gives me great pride to know that MCPON Black’s legacy will continue for generations to come».

To date, Ingalls has delivered 28 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers to the U.S. Navy. There are five more currently under construction at Ingalls, including USS Delbert D. Black (DDG-119).

Arleigh Burke-class (DDG-51) guided missile destroyers are highly capable, multi-mission ships that can conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection, all in support of the United States’ military strategy. They are capable of simultaneously fighting air, surface and subsurface battles. The ships contain myriad offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime defense needs well into the 21st century.

Fabrication of Destroyer

Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (HII) Ingalls Shipbuilding division marked the start of fabrication for the Arleigh Burke-class (DDG 51) guided missile destroyer Delbert D. Black (DDG-119) on July 21. The start of fabrication signifies that 100 tons of steel have been cut.

The ship is named in honor of Delbert D. Black, who served as a gunner’s mate in the U.S. Navy and was aboard the battleship USS Maryland during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Black served in three wars and was the first Master Chief Petty Officer of the U.S. Navy.

«Our shipbuilders are very excited about beginning the fabrication process of another DDG 51 destroyer, especially one named after the first Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy», said George Nungesser, Ingalls’ DDG 51 program manager. «Serial production provides the most effective and efficient way to build ships, and this is our fourth ship started in three years. We are committed to building another great warship for the Navy».

Black’s widow, Ima, is the ship’s sponsor and participated in the ceremony. She met Black after World War II, during which she served as a Navy WAVE (Women Accepted for Voluntary Emergency Service). She and Delbert were married 50 years until the time of his death in 2000.

«I want to thank all of the shipbuilders who are building this ship», she said. «Today was very emotional for me. I’m happy they did name the ship for him and that they are building it for him, but it is sad that he was not here to receive these honors. He would be very pleased about it. I know the men and women who serve on this ship will be proud to have the name Delbert D. Black on their uniform».

Delbert D. Black is the 32nd Arleigh Burke-class destroyer to be built at Ingalls. From this point on, shipbuilders will assemble the ship using modular construction, where pre-fabricated units are constructed separately and later lifted in place and integrated with other units.

«I am excited to see DDG-119 production starting off strong», said Captain Mark Vandroff, the Navy’s DDG 51 class program manager. «This ship will not only honor a great Navy leader, it will serve as a testament to all our current and future senior enlisted leaders of the value the Navy places on their service. My team was greatly honored to have Mrs. Black present at the start of fabrication and looks forward to her enthusiasm guiding us during the ship’s construction».

To date, Ingalls has delivered 28 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers to the U.S. Navy. The highly capable, multi-mission ship can conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection, all in support of the United States’ military strategy.
