" DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME" In April 1988, the Lynde McCormick was one of many ships of the U.S. fifth fleet engaged in operations against the Iranian Navy. This included anti – mine operations, stopping small – boat attacks against Persian Gulf shipping & countering tactical operations by Iranian warships near the Strait of Hormuz. These operations were successfully concluded. The ship was decommissioned 1 October 1991 and was sunk as a target ship on 14 February 2001.See More
