USS Jouett (CG-29) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Jouett (CG-29) was a Belknap-class cruiser in the service of the United States Navy that operated in the Western Pacific during the Vietnam conflict and later, in the Arabian Sea as part of the US Force to get involved in Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in August 1990. The ship was laid down in September 1962 by Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Washington, sponsored by Mrs. S. J. Ervin, and commissioned for US Navy service in December 1966 with Captain Robert S. Hayes in command. After finishing its duties in the Gulf of Tonkin, the ship was reclassified as a guided missile cruiser and it was deployed in the Middle East where it participated in the 1979 hostage crisis situation, Operation Desert Shield, and the military intervention regarding Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait. Before its decommissioning, the USS Jouett participated in the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization’s first Navy LEAP missile firing in September 1993. The vessel was decommissioned in January 1994 and placed in the National Defense Reserve Fleet stationed at Suisun Bay, California until August 2007 when it was used as target practice and ultimately sunk.
