After serving in cruiser Quincy (CA 39), Stockdale was appointed midshipman in the Naval Reserve on 17 March 1941 and was commissioned ensign on 12 June 1941. Ensign Stockdale reported to Oklahoma (BB 37) on 19 July 1941 and was killed while serving in that battleship during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941. The second Stockdale (DE 399) was named for Ens. Stockdale.)
USS Stockdale (DE 399) (1943-1947) was the first ship named in his honor.

Looking north from the Intrepid Ave. side, there are rows and rows of mothballed destroyers and destroyers escorts. One of the few identifiable ships is Stockdale, decommissioned at Green Cove Springs, Fla. in 1947 and later transferred and towed to Philadelphia. Two rows aft of her sits Janssen (DE 396), also a refugee from Green Cove Springs.||Jim Cunliffe|
