Everett-based Navy frigate Ingraham will be decommissioned

EVERETT — The guided-missile frigate USS Ingraham and a crew of about 200 sailors return to their home port at Everett Tuesday for the last time.

The Daily Herald reports the Ingraham will be decommissioned Nov. 14.

Its final mission was part of a multinational force fighting illegal drug trafficking in Central America waters.

The 408-foot Ingraham was commissioned in California in 1989 and made its home port at Naval Station Everett in 1994.

The Ingraham operated with the carrier Carl Vinson task force during the Iraq War. In addition to the Persian Gulf, deployments also took it to the Mediterranean.
