Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 14, 1986):
Representative of many FLETCHER class destroyers built by the Boston Navy Yard and exemplifying the intense military-industrial effort on the home front during World War II, CASSIN YOUNG earned four battle stars and Navy Unit Commendation at Okinawa.
