Grey Ghosts

The Oliver Hazard Perry class frigates ex-USS Sides (FFG-14) and ex-USS George Philip (FFG-12) sit rusting at anchor at Bremerton, Washington.


Decommissioned in 2003 and set to be sold to Turkey, these two frigates were left in limbo following the withdrawal of the Turkish purchase. Where they will go now, and when are both good questions. I have no answers, but I can guess that at least one is summed up with the words "razor blades"...
