USS Farenholt (DD-332)

USS Farenholt (DD-332)

The first USS "Farenholt" (DD-332) was a "Clemson"-class destroyer in the United States Navy following World War I. She was named for Oscar Farenholt.


"Farenholt" was launched 9 March 1921 by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation, San Francisco, California; sponsored by Mrs. Richard H. Fairweather; and commissioned 10 May 1921, Commander N. W. Post in command.

"Farenholt" first arrived at San Diego, California, her home port, 28 May 1921, and joined the Pacific Fleet in its yearly schedule of exercises and maneuvers along the west coast from the Pacific Northwest to the Panama Canal Zone. Gunnery drills, proving torpedoes, acting as plane guard for seaplane-carrying battleships and cruisers, fleet problems, and practice war maneuvers with the Army kept "Farenholt" almost constantly at sea. In 1924 and 1927, "Farenholt" passed through the Panama Canal for fleet concentrations in the Caribbean, and during the second cruise, sailed north to visit Norfolk, New York, and Newport before returning to San Diego. Between May and August 1925, the destroyer sailed to the Hawaiian Islands for a fleet problem and joint exercises, then sailed on with the Battle Fleet to visit Pago Pago, Samoa, and ports in Australia and New Zealand, returning to the west coast by way of Honolulu. Again in 1928 she sailed to Pearl Harbor for large scale exercises in Hawaiian waters.

During the summer of 1929, in her last year of service, "Farenholt" cruised the west coast with Naval Reserve members embarked for training, visiting Victoria, British Columbia, as well as United States ports.


She was decommissioned 20 February 1930, and after scrapping, was sold as a hulk 10 June 1931, in accordance with the terms of the London Treaty limiting naval armament.
