"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address

Going to the mothball fleet
Off to mothballs. Companion story here.
Former USS Robin (MHC 54) is towed from the Naval Station Ingleside, Texas, wharf enroute to Beaumont, Texas. It is the first of the four decommissioned Osprey Class coastal mine hunters to be towed to where it will be stored for logistical support.
Thanks to Glenn Geramine of Seaward Services (that's his tug moving the Robin)!
