West Seattle scene: USS Shoup visits Elliott Bay

July 6, 2011 at 12:04 pm | In Seen at sea, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

Thanks to Gary Jones for sharing his photo of the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Shoup passing West Seattle shores this morning. It’s homeported in Everett, so it’s not far from home. Gary offers a little more of DDG 86′s local history: “Commissioned in 2002 at Seattle’s Port Terminal 37, she was part of the Seafair fleet in 2009.”
