There have been six ships in the US Navy that have borne the name Preble.  Below is a patch from the 5th U.S. Navy ship named in honor of Commodore Edward Preble. The patch is closely patterned after the supposed Preble family coat of arms.  Where the scroll on the ship's patch has DLG 15, the number of the ship, the coat of arms has the date it was granted to George Preble--October 20, 1585. Also, the name on the scroll had two b's, which was the spelling before the first Preble moved to America.

The 6th USS Preble (DDG 88) "Intrepid Patriot" was commissioned in 2002.  The commissioning poster can be seen below.
