The former USS Ticonderoga recently arrived in the Port of Brownsville in Texas where it will be scrapped. The U.S. Navy decommissioned this ship, the first of the service's operational warships to be equipped with the Aegis combat system, in 2004 after just over two decades in service.

The ex-Ticonderoga arrived at International Shipbreaking Limited's yard in Brownsville in September, according to a report from the Valley Morning Star newspaper in Texas. International Shipbreaking is a subsidiary of the EMR Group, which describes its work as "marine recycling," rather than scrapping.

USS Stout returned to port after a record breaking 215 consecutive days at sea (7 months) without a port visit.

This what 215 days at sea wear and tear looks like.
