NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - The Navy has scheduled a decommissioning ceremony for guided-missile frigate USS Carr Wednesday.
According to a news release from the Navy, the ship was commissioned in July 1985 and was built in Seattle, Wash. Originally, the Carr was homeported in South Carolina, but was moved to Norfolk in 1995.
With a crew of 15 officers and 170 enlisted, Carr was designed to provide protection to battle groups and anti-submarine warfare operations.
The event will be held at Naval Station Norfolk Wednesday morning.
