USS Slater heads downstate for repairs


ALBANY, N.Y. – The USS Slater left port Sunday morning to go south for extensive repairs.

The World War II ship was supposed to leave in February, but thick ice kept the floating museum in its port.

The destroyer escort is on its way to Staten Island. It was towed by a tug margot. The ship is expected back in Albany in early June to celebrate the 70th year of its commissioning.

The USS Slater is the last of its kind afloat in the United States.
