HISTORY OF THE USS DAVIS DD-937

The original insignia consists of a plain D on a shield, with a background of ocean and sky, the missile most likely signifying the anti-aircraft mission of the ship and the trident the anti-submarine aspect, with the ship's alliterative motto: "Dynamic, Dauntless, [and] Daring" on a banner below the shield. The "U.S.S. DAVIS" and "DD 937" complete the insignia, surrounded by mooring line, a motif most likely drawn from the U.S. Navy seal.
