The next unnamed guided missile destroyer, DDG 127 should be named U.S.S. Gary L. Rehm Jr, after Fire Controlman 1st Class Gary L. Rehm Jr, who gave his own life to save 20 other sailors while serving aboard the U.S.S. Fitzgerald. He epitomized the guiding principle of Ship, Shipmate, Self by making the ultimate sacrifice in order to save 20 shipmates and attempting to save 6 more.
