Stuff You Should Know

USS Lookout was a radar picket ship belonging to the Guardian class that was used by the US Navy starting 1954 as part of the Distant Early Warning Line in the North Atlantic Ocean. Originally laid down as SS Claude Kitchen in April 1945 by J.A. Jones Construction Corporation in Panama City, Florida, the ship was acquired by the US Navy and sent in the North Atlantic Ocean where it began its duty on the perimeter of the radar defense net established around the US. The ship operated out of a port in Davisville, Rhode Island until early 1965 when it sailed for Bayonne, New Jersey where it was decommissioned in July 1965. It was placed in the reserve fleet at Hudson River, New York and it was sold in 1970 to a Spanish scrapping company.
