Destroyer Escort Day

ALBANY -- The third Saturday in June is recognized and celebrated nationwide as Destroyer Escort Day.

This day is meant to pay homage to the Destroyer Escort sailors killed in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Cold War years and to the ten Destroyer Escort ships lost in action. There was a ceremony at USS SLATER to honor and remember Destroyer Escorts and their sailors on Saturday morning.

Over 150,000 men served in destroyer escorts during World War II and through the Vietnam War. Their numbers are dwindling each year, but several of these veterans will be present to remember their lost shipmates. The first Destroyer Escort Day was held at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City on June 16, 1990. Destroyer Escort Day is celebrated by the Destroyer Escort Historical Museum and all of the Destroyer Escort Sailors Association Chapters nationwide. Each Chapter prepares and conducts its own program to honor the ships and crews.
