Laffey Celebration Set for April 13-15

Patriots Point plans a three-day celebration to officially welcome home the historic USS Laffey, the World War II gunship nearly sunk in battle and then nearly lost to saltwater erosion a few years ago.

Ninety crew members will be on hand for a series of events April 13 to April 15. The celebration of the ship's return from dry dock coincides with the  67th anniversary of the ship's battle at Okinawa when it was nearly sunk by kamikaze attack.
