The United States Ship Allen M. Sumner (DD-692) faithfully served her country from 1943 until 1973. She was there - World War II, Operation Crossroads Atom Bomb Test, Tsingtao China, Korean War, Suez Crisis, Cuban Blockade, Polaris Tests, Dominican Republic Crisis, Gemini Recovery, Vietnam War and Jordanian Crisis. This site is dedicated to preserving the memories of SUMNER and the men who served aboard her.
