During World War II 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-Boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and supplies. In the Pacific, they stood first in line to defend naval task forces from Kamikaze attacks. Today only one remains afloat in America. Step back in time. Return to 1945 aboard USS SLATER. See how Sailors worked, hear the sounds of a living ship, touch a piece of American history, and walk the decks where hundreds of Sailors have walked before.

Took my 5 year old son to the USS Slater, our guide was a complete gentleman, allowing my son to rotate machine guns and cannons, encouraging his thoughts and comments, and making it an exceptional experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour, the navigational room...More
