On This Day...
Forty-one years ago, December 15th, 1977 at 0900 the National Ensign and Commissioning Pennant were hauled down officially decommissioning the USS RICH (DD820).

This ended a memorable career of a U.S. Navy warship which faithfully served her nation for 31 years, 5 months and 12 days.

God Bless all those who sailed her.
