For the strength of a ship is the Service,
And the strength of the Service the ship.”

– by Rear Admiral Ronald Arthur Hopwood (The Laws of the Navy, 1896)

Greetings from the USS STERETT Association

Welcome Aboard

The USS STERETT Association is an organization that celebrates former and current crew members of all the ships that have proudly carried the Sterett name.  Whether you have interest in the DD-27, the DD-407, the DLG/CG-31 or the DDG-104, this is the place for you.  The USS STERETT Association exists because people just like you have fond memories of a special time aboard a ship named after Lt. Andrew Sterett.

So, grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite grog) and check out the USS STERETT Association web site.  It might just take you back to a special place and time.

Efforts to Save DLG/CG-31

Last week, it was reported that on 12 May 1994 CG-31 had been transferred to the Maritime Administration at Suisun Bay, in the S.F. Bay area.  That post brought back a lot of memories and caused many to ask why we ever allowed the 3rd USS STERETT (DLG/CG 31) to be...
