USS Euryale Dedication Plaque

"From the First, a Leader":

An American officer, on board for translation assistance as we went to New Guinea, told us that "Euryale," when spoken by a Japenese person, could be translated as "From the first, a leader." Totally approprate, I had saved the paper that was distributed at that time, and asked that it appear on the plaque in Fredericksburg."--Bill Bradfield
