The USS Bryce Canyon is a Shenandoah-class destroyer tender laid down on July 7, 1945, and launched on March 7, 1946. It was commissioned on September 15, 1950, under Capt. M. R. Gerin’s with the hull number AD-36 and served in the US Navy for 31 years until it was decommissioned on June 30, 1981. During its activities, the ship carried a complement of 859 people on board and had the main missions in Panama Canal, San Diego, Yokosuka, Sasebo, Pearl Harbor, Nagoya, Kobe, Subic Bay, and Long Beach. After the decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on June 30, 1981. For the services brought to the country during the Korean World, the USS Bryce Canyon received one battle star. We have the testimonial of a former shipmate, who sais that when he was on the ship in the sleeping quarters the asbestos walls were cracked exposing the crewmen to the harmful fibers.
