The guided missile destroyer USS Barry (DDG-52), an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, the fourth United States ship named after the ‘Father of the American Navy’, Commodore John Barry, is one of the US Navy ships deployed to the Mediterranean Sea for strikes against Libya.

USS Barry was dispatched to the Mediterranean on March 1, 2011, possibly because the United States anticipated the current situation in Libya, in view of the Libyan uprising. On 19 March 2011, the US Navy reported that the USS Barry was firing Tomahawk cruise missiles to suppress the Libyan air defenses as part of the Operation Odyssey Dawn.
