McInerney (1899–1956).

McInerney remained in service until 31 August 2010, when the ship was decommissioned and transferred to the Pakistani Navy . After a major overhaul and refurbishment, the ship was renamed PNS Alamgir (F260) , and entered service in early 2011.

McInerney ' s mission was to provide multi-threat protection for military and merchant shipping, amphibious task forces and underway replenishment groups. During her first two years of service, McInerney was the U.S. Navy test platform for the LAMPS MK-III ( SH-60B helicopter) anti-submarine warfare system and the Recovery Assist, Secure, and Traverse (RAST) system. Her efforts during this period earned her a Meritorious Unit Commendation . In 1981, McInerney appears to have been part of Destroyer Squadron 8 .
