USS LOCKWOOD (FF-1064)



Lockwood (DE-1064), one of the newest and most powerful destroyer escorts, was laid down 3 November 1967 by Todd Shipyards Corp., Seattle, Wash.; launched 5 September 1968; and cosponsored by Mrs. Charles A. Lockwood, the admiral's widow, and Mrs. John Canty, his daughter. The ship is scheduled to commission in the summer of 1970.

When she joins the fleet, Lockwood will be a valuable addition to the destroyer forces, designed for optimum performance in antisubmarine duty, in addition being well suited to other missions such as search and rescue, patrol, blockade, and surveillance.
