Ship Name and Designation History

This section lists the names and designations that the ship had during its lifetime. The list is in chronological order.

    Keel Laid 8 August 1994 - Launched 1 August 1995
    Christened 28 October 1995

  1. USS MILIUS DDG-69

Naval Covers

This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.

  1. USS Milius DDG-69 Covers Page 1    (1994-2008)

 

Postmarks

This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Within each set, the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of earliest known usage.

A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
 
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the existing example.

Other Information

USS MILIUS (DDG 69) is named in honor of NAVY pilot Captain Paul L. Milius (1928-1968). On February 27, 1968 Captain (then Commander) Milius was piloting an OP-2E observation aircraft on an armed reconnaissance mission over Laos. While conducting his mission, the aircraft was hit by anti-aircraft artillery fire. Commander Milius elected to remain at the controls of his badly damaged aircraft, maintaining stable flight, and ordered his seven crew members to bail out, all of whom were rescued. Just before the aircraft crashed, Commander Milius is believed to have bailed out, but rescuers were unable to locate him. Captain Milius was declared Missing In Action (MIA). On April 26, 1978, his status was revised to Presumed Killed In Action (PKIA). He was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross.

The Ship's Sponsor is Ms. Annette Milius, daughter of Captain Paul Lloyd Milius.
