|65k||John Keane Reybold was born at Delaware City, Del. on 11 January 1903, was appointed midshipman 13 July 1922 and commissioned ensign on 03 June 1926. Having
served in various ships including Idaho, Utah, Simpson (on the Asiatic Station), and Omaha, he assumed command of
Cowell, on 17 June 1940. Detached on 23 September, he briefly commanded Claxton and on 31 October assumed command of Dickerson (DD 157).
Commissioned lieutenant commander on 01 January 1941, he commanded Dickerson on Neutrality Patrol and, after December 1941, on coastal patrol and Icelandic convoy
escort duty until 19 March 1942. On that date, Dickerson, enroute to Norfolk, was fired on by a nervous merchantman, SS Liberator. Liberator's
shells hit the destroyer's charthouse, killing Lt. Comdr. Reybold and three others.
USS Reybold (DE 177) (1943-1944) was the first ship to be named in his honor.
