About the Ship

The USS Detroit (AOE-4) was the fourth and last Sacramento-class fast combat support ship built for the United States Navy. She was laid down on 29 November 1966 by Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Bremerton, Washington; launched 21 June 1969; and commissioned on 28 March 1970. She is the fourth United States Navy ship named after Detroit, Michigan (the largest city in the state of Michigan) & the fifth ship total including one commissioned by the British Navy in Canada.

Detroit served for 35 years operating primarily with the U.S. 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean Sea and Persian Gulf regions.
