The U.S. Navy decommissioned the last two Cyclone-class patrol coastal ships stationed at Naval Support Activity Bahrain.
Leaders and crewmembers of USS Monsoon (PC 4) and USS Chinook (PC 9) marked the end of nearly three decades of U.S. naval service.
The ceremony was attended by U.S. 5th Fleet officials and celebrated nearly three decades of U.S. naval service.
The two ships, USS Monsoon (PC 4) and USS Chinook (PC 9), were initially commissioned in 1994 and 1995, respectively.
The decommissioned ships are the last of a group of 10 ships designed for shallow-water operations that were stationed in Bahrain.
Last year, the U.S. Navy decommissioned and transferred five patrol craft to the Royal Bahrain Naval Force.
Monsoon and Chinook are slated for transfer to the Philippine Navy.
The ships are part of the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF), a multinational naval partnership led by the United States.
The partnership ensures maritime security and stability in some of the world's most important shipping lanes.
