Navy decommissioning another frigate at Everett

EVERETT — The Navy is holding a decommissioning ceremony Friday at Naval Station Everett for the frigate Rodney Davis. It returned from its final deployment last month, after 28 years of service.

The Navy plans to sell it to a foreign military.

The Navy also recently decommissioned another Everett-based frigate, the Ingraham, which will be scrapped in Bremerton.

Only three warships remain based at Everett: the aircraft carrier Nimitz and two destroyers, the Shoup and Momsen.
