SUISUN BAY - AUGUST 2004

Acting as lead Volunteer for the West Coast restoration team for the destroyer, USS JOSEPH P. KENNEDY JR (DD-850), Mr. Peter P. Papadakos lead a team of volunteers from August 9-13 to remove passageway lights, brass covers, growlers, sound powered phones and other remaining common items on the cruisers, JOUETT, STERETT and HORNE. These CGs will be leaving Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet shortly for their final trip to Brownsville, Texas for scrapping. I know it's sad news for many of us to know that Horne will soon be going through a process known as "ship breaking". But if it's any consolation, bits and pieces of Horne will live on aboard the USS Joseph P. Kennedy at Battleship Cove. Mr. Papadakos took the following photos and sent me this note.


"
USS HORNE was really the only CG at SBRF where you could feel the crew's pride in their ship.
The shiny brass and chrome spoke volumes to me."

Our thanks to Mr. Papadakos for taking the time to find us and deliver these photos.
