Larsen Applauds the USS Ingraham and its Sailors

Oct 30, 2014 Issues: Supporting our Naval Bases

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, today applauded the sailors of the USS Ingraham as the ship returns from its final deployment. The Navy frigate most recently assisted in a mission to target drug trafficking routes off the coast of Central America. The ship is home ported in Everett and will be decommissioned in November.

“The USS Ingraham and its sailors have a long and decorated history of service to our country. I applaud the many officers and enlisted sailors who served with distinction on deployments around the world throughout the ship’s 26 years of service.

“Naval Station Everett is critical to our national security, and the Ingraham was one of the first ships to be assigned to the base. The ship has been a fixture of the Everett waterfront and played an important role as part of the Pacific fleet.

“As the ship comes into port for the final time, the community of Everett can be proud of the ship and the sailors who made their home in Northwest Washington,” Larsen said.
