PORT ANGELES — The city will return to its naval heritage Friday when two minesweepers arrive for the Memorial Day weekend.
The minesweepers USS Scout and USS Chief, both from Ingleside, Texas, are scheduled to arrive at City Pier at 2 p.m. They will remain in port Saturday and Sunday, before resuming duties Monday.
USS Chief Public Information Officer Lt. j.g. Steve Lee said Navy officials have approved of limited tours of at least one of the minesweepers.
“We will have informal tours from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday,” Lee said.
Since room is limited aboard the minesweeper, Lee said, tours will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.This full report appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties. Or click on “Subscribe” to order your copy via U.S. mail.
