 ###The USS King (DLG-10) was the last of its class of ten ships to be modernized. The delay for the King was because it was used as a test platform for the gattling gun anti-missile system. All nine of the King’s sister ships went through modernization at either Bath Iron Works in Maine or the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. I was the Engineering Officer on the King and all of us thought we would be going to one of those locations. When we left San Diego for the East Coast we didn’t know where we would end up because the contract had not been let by the time we departed San Diego. When we got to Norfolk we were told to turn around and go to New Orleans. Boland Marine Manufacturing Company had been awarded the contract. At that time the Chair of the Appropriations Committee was the congressman from the first congressional district in Louisiana which included New Orleans. Also, the president of Boland Marine was a personal friend of his. You may draw your own conclusions. ###The USS King (DLG-10) was the last of its class of ten ships to be modernized.
