8 years ago508 views



NORFOLK (Sept. 30, 2009) After 39 years of faithful service, USS Nashville (LPD 13) was decommissioned during a ceremony Sept. 30 at Norfolk Naval Station on Pier 4 following more than 39 years of faithful service to the fleet. Decommissioning ceremonies mark the conclusion of a ship’s active service. During Nashville’s decommissioning ceremony, it lost its lifeblood when the crew disembarked, the watch was secured and the colors were struck for the last time. “It’s time for those of us who knew her to say goodbye,” said keynote speaker, retired Vice Adm. Frank Donovan, Commanding Officer of the Nashville from 1982-1983. (U.S. Navy video/Released)
