Navy destroyer the U.S.S McFaul is named for Donald McFaul, a 1975 graduate of Bend Senior High School. 

 

Dick Tobiason with Bend Heroes Foundation says McFaul was a member of Navy Seal Teams One and later Team Four, who was instrumental in helping to take out Panama's Manuel Noriega in 1989 and rescuing other Navy Seals in the mission.

 

"He was killed in that rescue and received the Navy Cross which is only second to the Medal of Honor. So then when he was killed, the U.S.S. McFaul Destroyer was being built at the time. In fact, even before it was commissioned during sea trials, they named it the McFaul. And so that coincided with his death within months. And then the ship has been deployed ever since."

 

Tobiason says it was when McFaul was with Navy Seal Team Four when he was killed while saving other Navy Seals in the Panama mission.
