1971 Mullinnix Postcard






The following is from the history of the USS Davis DD-937

"At Guantanamo Bay for refresher training on 16 February 1971, she (USS Davis) was detached for surveillance operations off Cuba, with the CECIL (DD-835) and CALCATERRA (DER-390) to monitor and identify shipping out of Cienfuegos. Relieved three days later by the MULLINNIX (DD-944), she returned on 26 March for a four-day stint of harbor surveillance.




Mullinnix sister-ship was decommissioned on 31 January, 1970 to undergo prolong antisubmarine warfare modernization at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Extensive improvements to sensors, weaponry, communications, and crew habitability were accomplished and on 19 April, 1971, she was re-commissioned and joined CruDesFlot 4 in Norfolk.
