The photos below were taken by me on March 27, 2010, during a visit to USS LCS(L) 102 at the former Mare Island Naval Shipyard. She is the last remaining vessel of 130 Landing Craft Support (Large) built during World War II. In 1949, all remaining ships of this type were redesignated Landing Ship Support Large (LSSL). Decommissioned after World War II, LCS(L) 102 was transferred to Japan in 1953. Returned in 1966, she was transferred to Thailand the same year and entered service as NAKHA (LSSL 751). In 2007, the decommissioned NAKHA was transported back to the United States and donated to the National Association of USS LCS(L) 1-130.
