    Hawes 75k Artist's conception of Hawes by the renowned graphic illustrator John Barrett, with the text written by naval author and historian Robert F. Sumrall. Their company, Navy Yard Associates, offers prints of most destroyers, submarines and aircraft carriers in various configurations during the ship's lifetime. ALL the long hulled guided missile frigates ARE available. The prints can be customized with ship's patches, your photograph, your bio, etc. When you purchase artwork from them, please indicate that you heard about their work from Navsource. Navy Yard Associates
    Hawes 5k Richard Ellington Hawes was born in Thomson, Ga. on 12 February 1894 and attended the Univ. of Georgia and Mercer Univ. where he excelled in sports. He passed up the bar exam to coach and play professional baseball. When the U.S. entered WWI in 1917, Hawes enlisted in the Navy and fifteen months later accepted a temporary appointment to Ensign. He reverted to Warrant Boatswain in 1920. In 1926 he joined Falcon (ASR 2) and played a key role in the salvage of S-51 off Block Island, for which he received the Navy Cross. He also assisted in the salvaging of the submarine S-4 off Provincetown, Ma. in December 1927. In 1929, Hawes was commissioned an Ensign by a special act of Congress for his role in the salvage of S-51 and S-4. In January 1940, Lt. Hawes assumed command of Pigeon (ASR 6).

    On 10 December 1941 Pigeon was docked at the Cavite Navy Yard when Japanese warplanes attacked. Since Pearl Harbor, Hawes had main steam pressure up and the crew aboard, ready to get underway. Lashed to Quail (AM 15), which provided steering for both, they cleared the docks and headed for the safety of the bay. By this time Cavite had become an inferno. Seeing that the submarine Seadragon (SS 194) was about to be engulfed by bombs and fire in her berth, Lt. Hawes maneuvered Pigeon back to the flaming dock to haul the helpless submarine stern first from her berth. Another submarine and a minesweeper had just been sunk by direct hits. The heat and flames were so intense that they blistered the ship's paint, singed off body hair, and melted the brim of Hawes' cap. But Pigeon's crew managed to rig a line to Seadragon and tow her to safety, for which Hawes received his second Navy Cross and Pigeon was awarded the first Presidential Unit Citation of the war. Except for the brief periods when he was in transit or putting USS Chanticleer (ASR 7) and USS Anthedon (AS 24) into commission, Hawes spent virtually all of World War II at sea in the Pacific in command of his three ships. Like Hawes himself, his ships always had a reputation for efficiency and readiness. Hawes was promoted to Captain on 25 March 1945. On 1 December 1952 he was transferred to the retired list and promoted to Rear Admiral. Rear Admiral Hawes died at his home in Thomson, Ga. on 30 December 1968.

    USS Hawes (FFG 53) (1985-2010) was the first ship to be named in his honor.
