tt-ussbarryDuring Fleet Week, the Commodore Barry Club of Brooklyn visited the U.S.S. Barry, a naval destroyer at its homeport of Sullivan Piers in Staten Island. Named in honor of Commodore John Barry, the Catholic son of a poor Irish farmer who became the father of the American Navy, the ship conducts air defense, anti-submarine, anti-surface and strike operations.
On board, Commander Patrick M. Foster greeted Barry Club Mary Nolan with a medal and a plaque. Retired Admiral Robert Lunney presented the commander with a copy of Tim McGrath’s “John Barry: An American Hero in the Age of Sail.” Liam Murphy of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and Councilman Vincent Gentile joined in the festivities.
