Veterans Day Aboard Slater
When: Saturday, Nov 11, and Sunday, Nov 12, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Come celebrate our veterans aboard USS SLATER! We will have a ceremony at 0900, followed by tours of the WWII ship starting at 1000.
During World War II, 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and material. In the Pacific they stood in line to defend naval task forces from Japanese submarines and Kamikaze air attacks. Today, only one of these ships remains afloat in the United States, the USS SLATER.
Moored on the Hudson River in Albany, New York, the USS SLATER has undergone an extensive restoration that has returned the ship to her former glory. The museum offers hour-long guided tours, youth group overnight camping, and a historic location to hold naval reunions.
