USS Hawes (FFG-53)


USS Hawes (FFG-53)

USS "Hawes" (FFG-53) is a later model "Oliver Hazard Perry"-class guided missile frigate. She is named for Rear Admiral Richard E. Hawes (1894–1968) who was twice decorated with the Navy Cross for submarine salvage operations.

The contract to build "Hawes" was awarded to Bath Iron Works 22 May 1981, and her keel was laid 26 August 1983. She was launched 18 February 1984, delivered 1 February 1985, and commissioned 9 February 1985.

On 12 October 2000, USS "Hawes" was involved, along with USS "Donald Cook" (DDG-75), in providing repair and logistics support to the USS "Cole" (DDG-67), shortly after the bombing in Aden, Yemen.

As of 2006, "Hawes" is homeported at NS Norfolk, Virginia; she is part of Destroyer Squadron 22.

On April 28th, 2008, CDR Kristen Jacobsen took command of Hawes.
