C30Horne Today
On 07/14/08 Horne was towed to an area near the Hawaiian Islands where she served as a target ship during RIMPAC 2008. CLICK HERE to visit the Sink-Ex page.  Since 1994, Horne had been sitting quietly in Suisun (pronounced soo-soon) Bay in Benicia, California near San Francisco. It was part of the mothball fleet. See photos and satellite images. Zoom in to see the ships. If you ever rent the Movie Down Periscope, there are a few scenes filmed at Suisun in which the Cruisers can be seen in the background. I served on Horne a little under 3 years, including a difficult yard period in Long Beach and deployment to Desert Storm. I couldn't help but think about the millions of man hours that went into Horne since before her keel being laid in 1962 right up to her decommissioning 32 years later in 1994. Horne now sits empty and alone on the floor of the Pacific Ocean north of the island of Kauai, Hawaii.

Perhaps this site will help keep the memory or Horne alive by providing a place where Horne sailors can reunite and remember a great ship.
