“Remember the PRAIRIE, A 52 year old destroyer tender and oldest active Navy ship that served in every conflict from WWII? This mother to “”tin cans”” did innumerable repairs as well as providing medical and dental services. She is to be scrapped and cut up in Singapore. We honor her service to our country.”

  2. She was a fine old gal, and I’m proud to have served aboard her.
