USS LANG (FF-1060)



The second Lang (DE-1060) was laid down by Todd Shipyards Corp., San Pedro, Calif., 25 March 1967; launched 17 February 1968; sponsored by Mrs. Ephraim P. Holmes, wife of Admiral Holmes, Commander in Chief, Atlantic Fleet, and Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic Fleet; and is scheduled for completion in late 1969.

Once commissioned, Lang will join the Pacific Fleet in exercises and training along the west coast and in the waters of troubled Southeast Asia. With many traits of the swift and deadly destroyer, the escort ship is valuable not only in antisubmarine and amphibious warfare maneuvers but also in search, patrol, rescue, evacuation, blockade, and surveillance operations.
