USS Chicago began her career as CA-136 as a Baltimore Class heavy cruiser. She saw action during the bombardment of the Japanese Islands in the closing months of World War II. After the war, the ship was converted to a guided missile cruiser and re-designated CG-11. The ship served with distinction including 5 deployeents to Vietnam during the war. On her fifth cruise, the Chicago along with USS Long Beach was protecting A-6 Intruder and A-7 Corair II aircraft during the mining of Hai Phong harbor. On May 9, 1971 she downed a MiG at long range using her forward Talos missile battery. The ship was eventually decommissioned in 1980 and broken up. Her anchor survives on display at Navy Pier in Chicago, Il.
