USS Gallery (FFG-26)

USS Gallery (FFG-26), eighteenth ship of the Oliver Hazard Perry class of guided-missile frigates, was named for three brothers: Rear Admiral Daniel V. Gallery (1901-1977), Rear Admiral William O. Gallery (1904-1981), and Rear Admiral Philip D. Gallery (1907-1973). Ordered from Bath Iron Works on 28 February 1977 as part of the FY77 program, Gallery was laid down 17 May 1980, launched 20 December 1980, and commissioned 5 December 1981. Decommissioned and stricken 14 June 1996, she was transferred to Egypt 25 September 1996 as that nation's Taba (F 916)[?].

Gallery (FFG-26) was the first ship of that name in the US Navy.
