US name ship after Irishman

Vietnam war hero Corporal Patrick "Bob" Gallagher, has had a navy destroyer named after him. Gallagher who moved to the USA in 1963 was given the navy cross for diving on a grenade. Unfortunately he died just before his tour was up. The new ship will be called USS Gallagher.
Strange that, i thought it would be called "Bob".

The title "Hero" is often given to anyone in uniform. I have just read about this chap, and his hero badge should be gold plated.
