Old Navy cruiser at Bremerton to be auctioned

BREMERTON — An old Navy guided missile cruiser at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton will be auctioned for scrap.

The Government Liquidation business in Scottsdale, Ariz., says the USS Long Beach contains more than 7 million pounds of steel, aluminum and copper.

Radioactive materials have been removed from the nuclear-powered vessel. It was commissioned in 1961 and saw action in the Vietnam War. It was deactivated in 1994 and towed to Puget Sound.

Government Liquidation will start taking bids July 10.
