The Slater is a Cannon Class Destroyer Escort. Of the 565 escorts produced in World War II, USS SLATER (DE-766) is the only one remaining afloat in the United States, and with original battle armament and configuration. These trim but deadly warships had the duty of looking out for enemy submarines and kamikazes as they escorted ship convoys. Visitors have a chance to see what life was like for the sailors who manned these vessels.
