USS Frank Evans (DD-754) being decommissioned, 1969
Here we see the Allen M Sumner class destroyer USS Frank Evans (DD-754) being decommissioned in the floating drydock USS Windsor (ARD-22) in Subic Bay on 1 July 1969, after he bow was sliced off in a collision with the Australian carrier HMAS Melbourne. Some thought must have gone into repairing her, as a temporary stern has been installed while she was in the drydock, before it was decided that it wasn't worth the effort.
