USS JASON DUNHAM
DG-109

The JASON DUNHAM DDG-109 is the US Navy’s most advanced Arleigh Burke Class.  She was commissioned in Port Everglades on November 13, 2010.  

The warship is named after heroic United States Marine Corporal Jason Dunham who sacrificed his life by using his helmet to cover a hand grenade dropped by an insurgent.  His spontaneous action saved the lives of two fellow Marines during Operation Iraqi Freedom in April 2004.  Jason sustained serious injuries from the blast and died eight days later.  He was 22.  President George W. Bush honored Jason for his actions with the issue of the Medal of Honor Citation posthumously.  He is the first Marine Medal of Honor recipient for Operation Iraqi Freedom and the first Marine to receive the medal since the Vietnam War.

This USS Jason Dunham  model features:

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 20 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 80 lbs which need 2 people to handle and a fortified table to accomodate.)

- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

-  No computer-printed paper deck

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

- Light "rust"  appearance that only master modelers can make.
