Photo of workers preparing the U.S.S. Kansas City for departure from Suisun Bay

In the photo above, workers prepare the U.S.S. Kansas City for its July 31 departure from the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet to Mare Island Shipyard in Vallejo, California. There, the vessel--the third of the Navy's Wichita-class replenishment oilers--will be cleaned of invasive species and exfoliated prior to being recycled in Brownsville, Texas. Below, the Kansas City heads toward Mare Island.

A sad end to a fine ship, served aboard 1977 - 1981

I will be sorry to see the KC go.
