I was surprised to see her decommissioned so early as I really felt she had a lot more to give and yes, it really is disappointing that she wasn’t kept around afterwards as a key and historical piece of our naval nuclear timeline. Especially when I look back and see some of the ships they chose instead to keep around for the public to be able to tour.
The city of Long Beach would surely have welcomed the opportunity…
