|37k||Julian Bethune Jordan was born 11 April 1904, and graduated from the Naval Academy in 1925. He served in USS Chester (CA 27), in USS Dobbin (AD 3), and at various shore stations before reporting to USS Oklahoma (BB 37) on 4 August 1938. While serving as assistant engineering officer on board that battleship, he was one of the valiant men who were lost in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941.|
USS Jordan (DE 204) (1943-1945) was the first ship named in his honor.
