Tin Cans Save the Day. This painting depicts the USS Bailey in action on March 27, 1943, during the Battle of the Komandorski
Islands, which are Soviet territory located to west of the Aleutian Islands. During the battle the Bailey and three other destroyers distinguished
themselves by protecting a heavily damaged cruiser with a smoke screen and torpedo attack which convinced the superior Japanese force to retire.
The Bailey took several direct hits from two Japanese heavy cruisers while getting into position to launch her torpedoes. For this action, she was
awarded the Navy Unit Commendation.
