The USS Salem is a heavy cruiser that served in the United States Navy from 1949 to 1959. It was the last of the Des Moines-class cruisers, which were designed to provide heavy gunfire support for amphibious operations and shore bombardment. The USS Salem was also equipped with a new rapid-fire 8-inch gun system that could fire up to 10 rounds per minute per barrel. The USS Salem saw action in the Mediterranean Sea during the Cold War, participating in several exercises and operations with NATO allies. It also served as the flagship of the Sixth Fleet and the Second Task Fleet. The USS Salem was decommissioned in 1959 and transferred to the Naval Reserve Fleet. In 1994, it was towed to Quincy, Massachusetts, where it became a museum ship and a memorial to the sailors who died on board the USS Newport News, another Des Moines-class cruiser that suffered a turret explosion in 1972.
