I ran across what I believe to be the easiest way to get this (and the Navy Distinguished Service Star Medal). I actually happened upon it while trying to find a campaign mission that would allow me to get the Artillery Marksmanship achievement, unfortunately that didn't happen (despite having well over 200 artillery hits, apparently hits on land structures do not count).

In the campaign missions list go to mission 5, Raid on Balikpapan. Choose Rookie for the difficulty so you don't have to worry about getting downed by the enemy cruiser that shows up. You can use the in-game code to unlock all missions if this mission isn't available to you (hold RB, LB, RT, LT, and then press X while on the mission select screen).

Once the mission starts, disband your "fleet". Send the other destroyer somewhere to the northeast (away from the islands and potential targets). You can set it up to defend itself with free fire, but make sure free move is OFF so that it doesn't try and come steal your kills. A destroyer might show up close to this ship. If it does, don't worry if your ally sinks it as there are still enough ships remaining for you to get the achievement. Also, you might want to disable free fire on the ship you're controlling as it will fire its AA guns at the freighters and sink them.

Move your main ship in towards the islands. You should notice one destroyer patrolling the area. Take it out and then move on to sinking the freighters. I don't know if the PT dock will start spawning multiple PT boats, but you can destroy it just in case. Soon after you start your attack enemy reinforcements will show up. I had a PT boat and a cruiser pop in to my location and a destroyer that went for my idle ship (I had just moved it straight north instead of northeast). Of course, the advantage to this was that I could take the cruiser on solo instead of both warships at the same time.

Once you've taken out the cruiser and eliminated the annoying PT boat. Continue taking out the freighters. Also of note is the fortress that will continually drop artillery on your DD. It's a good idea to take this out early on as well.

I hope this helps, and please feel free to let me know how I could improve the guide if you feel it's not up to par.
