C30Welcome aboard, dedicated to those who served onboard Horne and home to what has to be the most extensive Horne related photo library on the World Wide Web. helps bring to life memories of what was truly one of the finest warships ever to sail the oceans of the world. I created this site to make finding Horne shipmates easier. I figure if somebody's searching the Net for USS Horne info they will eventually wind up here. So far it seems to be working.

C30Navy Veterans and Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a cancer caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos. Asbestos was once used heavily in the military, especially on Navy ships. Tragically, approximately 30 percent of mesothelioma victims are military veterans, usually Navy veterans. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with mesothelioma you have the right to file an asbestos lawsuit and seek compensation. Visit Mesothelioma Lawyer Center for comprehensive information and a free case consultation. For more information on legal options for mesothelioma victims, check out

C30Horne Today
On 07/14/08 Horne was towed to an area near the Hawaiian Islands where she served as a target ship during RIMPAC 2008. CLICK HERE to visit the Sink-Ex page.  Since 1994, Horne had been sitting quietly in Suisun (pronounced soo-soon) Bay in Benicia, California near San Francisco. It was part of the mothball fleet. See photos and satellite images. Zoom in to see the ships. If you ever rent the Movie Down Periscope, there are a few scenes filmed at Suisun in which the Cruisers can be seen in the background. I served on Horne a little under 3 years, including a grueling yard period in Long Beach. I couldn't help but think about the millions of man hours that went into Horne since before her keel being laid in 1962 right up to her decommissioning 32 years later in 1994. Horne now sits empty and alone on the floor of the Pacific Ocean north of the island of Kauai, Hawaii.

Perhaps this site will help keep the memory or Horne alive by providing a place where Horne sailors can reunite and remember a great ship.

If you have questions or comments, feel free to email me.
