Today in Military History
6 December 1917

USS Jacob Jones is sunk by U-53 during World War I. USS Jacob Jones was commissioned on 10 February 1916, the fifth ship in the Tucker-class of destroyers. Following America’s entry into World War I, she was tasked with patrolling the waters off the coast of Virginia. In early May 1917, she was deployed to Europe, arriving in Queenstown, Ireland, on 17 May. While stationed at Queenstown, she conducted patrols and escort duties for convoys. In December, USS Jacob Jones and five other destroyers were ordered to escort a convoy from Queenstown to Brest, France. After successfully escorting the convoy to France, she made her way back to Queenstown. As evening approached on 6 December 1917, the German submarine U-53 spotted USS Jacob Jones and fired a torpedo at the destroyer. The torpedo struck the destroyer and within minutes she began to sink. Her commander, David W. Bagley, ordered all life rafts launched. As the destroyer sunk beneath the waves some of the armed depth charges exploded. The explosions killed a number of sailors who were still trying to escape the sinking warship. The sinking of USS Jacob Jones marked the first US warship lost to enemy action in World War I. See MoreSee Less
