    Is this a firm date? And will she decommission on the same date. I was in the post commissioning crew and would like to be there.

    Hope she is preserved as the last of the Tribals as a Cold War Memorial. A group was trying to save her but never heard back from the Government. Would like to see her preserved with the Haida in Kingston, Ontario. The Haida and a World War II era ship named “Athabaskan” share a history. The Haida rescued survivors of the Athabaskan. Would be need to see the 2 generations of ships preserved next to each other with the story that binds them together.
