USS Rodney M. Davis home for the final time

The USS Rodney M. Davis and its roughly 200 sailors returned to Everett on Friday after a six-month deployment to the Pacific and Indian oceans.

It was the final homecoming for the Davis. The U.S. Navy plans to decommission the 27-year-old ship early in March and sell it to a foreign government.

When it leaves, it will be the last to go of the three Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates formerly stationed here.

The USS Ford was decommissioned in 2013. The USS Ingraham was decommissioned last month, and it is still in port, where sailors are gutting it. The Ingraham is scheduled Jan. 30 to be towed from Everett to Naval Station Kitsap in Bremerton, where it will be scrapped.

After the frigates are gone, Naval Station Everett will still be homeport to the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers — the USS Shoup and USS Momsen — and two Coast Guard cutters.
