The USS Jacob Jones was the first American destroyer ever to be sunk by enemy fire.  After the United States entered World War I in April 1917, Jacob Jones was sent overseas.  On 6 December, Jacob Jones was steaming independently from Brest, France, for Queenstown, when she was torpedoed and sunk by the German submarine U-53 with the loss of 66 men out of a crew of 150.
