Title: USS PC-581
Description: Alongside the Long Wharf in Newport, Rhode Island, just before she got underway to greet the ships of Escort Destroyer Division Sixty-One as they returned from a deployment to the Korean War zone on 14 March 1951. CortDesDiv61, an Atlantic Fleet unit, had left Newport on 5 July 1950, and subsequently deployed to Korea via the Mediterranean Sea and the Suez Canal. It returned to Newport via the Panama Canal, thus circumnavigating the Earth. The Division's ships were USS Fred T. Berry (DDE-858), the Division Flagship, USS Norris (DDE-859), USS McCaffery (DDE-860) and USS Keppler (DDE-765).
