"Any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile...can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction, 'I served in the United States Navy'."

The Cushing Association is a group of men and women dedicated to keeping the memory and the spirit of all past and present USS Cushings alive. We consider all Cushing crewmen, past and present, and their spouses as members of the Association. The current active membership includes crewmen from the DD-55, DD-376, DD-797, and DD-985. The last surviving member of the DD-55 crew was a member of the Association. You can read Paul Frisco's article about Mr. Dorr here. On this page, you will find the list of Association Officers, and the Guest Book. Please leave a message for us.

There have been five ships in the US Navy named for Commander Willam Barker Cushing. The first ship was the Navy's first torpedo boat. The other four have all been destroyers. The second, third, and fourth ships were units of the O'Brien class, the Mahan class, and the Fletcher class, respectively. The fifth ship was a unit of the Spruance class.
