"We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came." John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

Naval history was once again made on May 22, 2015: the third ship to bear the name of the Naval World War II hero USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG-58) was decommissioned in Mayport, Florida.
Samuel R. Roberts FFG-58
Like her sister ships, DE-413 and DD-823, FFG-58 sailed in harm’s way on the world’s oceans to help preserve this nation’s freedom. Her legacy will live on.
In 2015, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of our ship’s fight in Vietnam, which took place from September 1965 to April 1966.
