History:
USS Gurke (DD-783) was a Gearing-class destroyer of the United States Navy, named for United States Marine Corps Private Henry Gurke (1922–1943), who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

DD-783 was originally laid down as "John A. Bole", but that name was reassigned to the John A. Bole (DD-755). Gurke was launched on 15 February 1945 by the Todd-Pacific Shipyards, Inc., Tacoma, Washington; sponsored by Mrs. Julius Gurke, mother of Private Gurke; and commissioned on 12 May 1945, Commander Kenneth Loveland in command.
