USNS PFC Eugene A. Obregon (T-AK-3006) 07/31/2023 Transfer to MARAD

MARAD means transfer to the Maritime Administration for storage / sale / scrapping.
Legislative Consideration basically means Navy wants to decommission the ship, but Congress doesn't agree, and its still being argued.
OSIR is the Office of Scientific Investigation and research.

Of note is the sale of most of the Cyclone class of large patrol boats (PC), and the rapid exit of the almost useless Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), which has proven to be of almost no use against a future opponent such as the Chinese.

Yes, she and her sister Montford Point, also on the list below, were brought into service as interim Expeditionary Transfer Dock ships, to cover until purpose designed ships came into service, the USS Lewis B. Puller class.

With five, more capable and purpose designed ships entering service, John Glen and her sister Montford Point are being decommissioned.

This makes me feel old.

When I was a kid the Ticonderoga class CGs were among the most cutting edge, capable and formidable surface combatants on the planet with their AEGIS combat systems, SPY 1-D radars and seemingly endless expanses of Mk41 VLS cells. The first time I saw one was in the 1990s when USS CONSTELLATION (CV-64) accompanied by CHOSIN and LAKE ERIE visited Sydney. To say that I was impressed is a massive understatement.

Now they're past their used by date and progressively being put out to pasture. Sigh :roll:

I had the pleasure of spending a day at sea onboard the USS LAKE CHAMPLAIN in the MEAO in late 2001 being hosted by our US Navy cousins. It was brilliant. I didn't know that 10'000 tons of steel could accelerate so quickly. You'd almost think that Allan Pew was driving it though thankfully there weren't rocks in the way......

I agree with you there Carl, I went on the Port Royal (before she was run aground onto rocks), it was impressive to say the least.

Also worked with several of them. MOBILE BAY and BUNKER HILL being the two most worked with in the Gulf in 1990. Great looking and impressive ships.

Shilo did the same at Wentworth Falls - was very spectacular. That's how we got the landmark to the left of the wharf "Pew Rocks". I think the Sonar dome was toast.
