The second Haddo was launched by New York Shipbuilding Corp., Camden, N.J., 18 August 1962; sponsored by Mrs. Henry M. Jackson, wife of the Senator from Washington; commissioned 16 December 1964, Comdr. John G. Williams in command.

After shakedown out of New London, Conn., in January 1965, Haddo arrived at her home port, Charleston, S.C., 8 February and joined Sub Ron 4. She operated off the Atlantic coast and in the Caribbean until departing Charleston 7 July for the Mediterranean. She participated in numerous exercises with ships of the 6th Fleet and NATO countries before returning home 7 November. Haddo has continued this pattern of service, alternating operations out of home port in the Atlantic with 6th Fleet deployments, through 1967.
