What I wouldn't give to be on her decks when she unfurls those sails.....

I was on her last year when she was still a mess of reconstruction... great to see her all put back together again! Hal

OK. Does anyone have ship art for the USS Constitution? Clearly she is missing from AE. Shouldn't she be stationed at the East Coast base?

I think the bigger question is: How many K-guns can she carry?
ASW rating of 32?

That's the only ship I was ever assigned to. I was TADed for a weekend to coordinate a bunch of retirements.

that'd be so cool - to be 'mustered out' w/ all due ceremony on the deck of USS C.

Friend of mine was assigned to her in '68-69 as postal clerk. Only "sea-duty" he ever saw.
