ABOUT: 1978 U.S. Navy Great Lakes Cruise
 
Three U.S. Navy destroyers visited Erie in 1978. The ships included the USS Robert A. Owens (DD-827), the USS Davis (DD-937) and the USS William C. Lawe (DD-763). The Davis, at 418 feet with a displacement of 4,000 tons, was the largest, followed by the Owens (390’6″) and the Lawe (390′). The Owens, at 3,510 tons, was ten tons heavier than the Lawe.

The transit of the St. Lawrence Seaway and operations in the Great Lakes provide the crew of these three U.S. Atlantic Fleet destroyers with superb training. To capitalize on these training opportunities, selected members of the Naval Reserve are assigned to the ships for two-week periods of active duty.
