Destroyer Escorts were built in large numbers during World War II to combat the Nazi U-boat threat in the Atlantic. They were small, fast, heavily armed, and uncomfortable to live on.
The Slater (DE-766) is the last remaining destroyer escort in the U.S. She was decommissioned in 1951 and loaned to the Greek navy where she served for almost 40 years. In 1991, a dedicated group of volunteers brought her back from Greece and restored her to her World War II configuration. She is now a floating museum in Albany New York.
