USS BOULDER LST-1190

USS BOULDER coming alongside the east face of Pier Eight.

In my former post I stated, “We know BOULDER visited Hamilton. But when? I suspect that it was between 1991 and 1993. She was paid off in February 1994 and twenty-five years later is still awaiting scrapping in Philadelphia.”

BOULDER deployed to the Great lakes May to August 1989 and June to August 1992 with the former period being the most likely. Thanks to LCdr (Ret’d) Bob DeWolfe and Cdr (Ret’d) Bob Williamson for their assistance.
