78 viewsThe U.S. Navy landlocked "dummy" training ship USS Recruit (TDE-1), located at the Naval Training Center in the Point Loma area of San Diego. She was built to scale, two-thirds the size of a Dealey-class destroyer escort, and was commissioned on 27 July 1949. Recruit was decommissioned in March 1967, due to the inability to classify the unique ship in a computerized registry of Navy vessels. However she was later recommissioned in 1982, and refurbished to look like an Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate (as TFFG-1). Commissioned or otherwise, she served continuously as a training facility from her construction in 1949 until the base was closed in 1997.
