A new ship named after Medal of Honor recipient John Finn will be commissioned July 15. The USS John Finn, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, is dedicated to the man who used a .50-caliber machine gun to fire at attacking Japanese planes on Dec. 7, 1941. Finn is portrayed firing at Japanese planes in “The Warriors of Kaneohe,” by Jim Laurier.
