    the u.s.s kidd was a destroyer that saw action in WWII and the korean war. the destroyer was named after admiral isaac c. kidd who was killed on the battleship arizona during the attack on pearl harbor. the u.s.s. kidd was put into service in 1943 and was awarded eight battle stars in the pacific during WWII and four battle stars in the korean war. for those interested in military history the u.s.s. kidd and museum is well worth a visit when in downtown baton rouge.

    The USS Kidd is a restored WWII Fletcher class destroyer and a national historic landmark. She was awarded 12 battle stars in the Pacific during WWII and the Korean conflict. It is berthed on the Mississippi River in a unique cradle that supports it when the river is low but allows it to float when the river rises. The submarine is part of the Nautical Museum.
