Aetos (D01) decommissioned

30 years ago today, on 5 July 1991, Hellenic Navy's ΑΕΤΟΣ (D-01) was decommissioned. Greece later donated the ship to the Destroyer Escort Sailors Association.
Destroyer escort sailors from around the nation donated more than a quarter of a million dollars to bring Slater back to the United States as a museum ship. A Russian ocean-going tugboat towed the ship from Crete to New York City in 1993, where it was docked next to the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid. Volunteers began restoring the ship and seeking a permanent home for her; Albany, New York was decided upon. On Sunday, 26 October 1997, Slater arrived at the Port of Albany, where she still is today.
