I intend to maintain this article on Citizendium. I wrote its original version for Wikipedia during 2006. The source for most of the material was the public domain Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships. I did the extensive Wikification, which included standardization of geographical names across the range of articles on similar ships. I also copy edited the DANFS material, added facts, found photos and external links, etc. There have been few changes by others, and they are minor. I left in the red links, hoping that Citizendium would have articles about them soon. The table at the top of the article is based on similar tables in Wikipedia; I've modified it slightly for CZ.

When I brought the article to CZ, I added sections for each year the ship was in commission, improved the headings on the table, and made minor copy edits. Louis F. Sander 09:49, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Thanks, again!

Could we have a short article about commissioning and decommissioning ships? I don't really know what this means, except putting into and taking out of service. But what does that involve? What ceremonies? How does the Navy treat a commissioned, and a decommissioned ships? Etc. Note you might want to edit the title of the article, I have no idea if the one I suggested is best. --Larry Sanger 09:55, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

That's on my agenda. The ship articles have a LOT of red links, some of them specific to the Navy. Once I get the rest of the ships brought over, I'm going to attack the red links. I can do a ship in about 10 minutes, and I have maybe 80 more of them to do. I'm hoping to bring 'em in as a block, tackle the common red links as a block, etc. Louis F.
