USS ROBISON was built at Defoe Shipbuilding Company in Bay City, Michigan, commissioned in Boston, then initially homeported in San Diego. the end of 1963 began the regular deployments that marked ROBISON's career. Her 1960s deployments usually placed her as part of a screening force around the aircraft carriers at Yankee Station. ROBISON, when the opportunity arose, provided shore bombardment and destroyed light enemy supply craft in Vietnamese waters. After Vietnam, ROBISON resumed a regular cycle of "West Pacs", standing her "watches" in the Far East. USS ROBISON made a total seventeen deployments always "In War...In Peace...In Readiness". USS ROBISON served her country for 29 years, 9 months and 22 days, until decommissioned on 1 OCT 1991. The hulk of ROBISON was sold to Consolidated Minerals for conversion into a "power barge", but the scheme failed to pan out and she was scrapped in 1996.
