USS Rodney M. Davis (FFG-60), 1987-____

USS Rodney M. Davis, an Oliver Hazard Perry class guided-missile frigate built at San Pedro, California, was commissioned in May 1987. The next year, following shakedown, she was sent to Japan to join the Seventh Fleet. Operating out of her homeport at Yokosuka, she has subsequently served in the Western Pacific and made several deployments to the Persian Gulf area. In May 1989, she was one of three Seventh Fleet ships to visit at Shanghai, China, the first U.S. Navy port call at a mainland Chinese port in over forty years.

USS Rodney M. Davis is named in honor of Sergent Rodney Maxwell Davis (1942-1967), USMC, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for heroism during the Vietnam War.
