The third Jouett (DLW-29) was laid down 25 September 1962 by Puget Sound Naval Shipsard, Bremerton, Wash.; launched 30 June 1964; sponsored by Mrs. S. J. Ervin, Jr., wife of the Senator from North Carolina; and commissioned 3 December 1966, Captain Robert S. Hayes in command

Carrying the most modern antisubmarine detection and missile warfare gear, Jouett joins the 9eet as a ready defender of freedom. Her motto, "Eternal Vigilance," serves as a reminder of the ship's mission in war and peace.

Upon completion of fitting out in February of 1967 Jouett was assigned to Cruiser-Destroyer Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet, and operated out of her home Port. San Diego.
