Commissioned in 1934, the US Navy cruiser San Francisco was the second ship of the New Orleans class. It was present at and survived the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941, and then served valiantly throughout the Pacific War, receiving a total of 17 battlestars, the second-most decorated ship in US Naval history. It was decommissioned in 1947.
