The FFG-7 Oliver Hazard Perry class of Gas Turbine Guided Missile Frigates were the next step in the evolution of the USN during the 1970's Cold War era.  They came online intended to be a class of lighter and less expensive escort ships to complement the other new class being commissioned, the Spruance class destroyers.  There were 51 Perry frigates commissioned between 1977 and 1989, the last going out of service in 2015.

Commissioning set from Perry class USS WADSWORTH (FFG-9) In service 1978 to 2002

 

This is the late 1970's to 80's cap patch and Swiss-Tex patch from the ships's store.  They came on cellophane wrapped unmarked cards identical to the Swiss-Tex marked cards.  The ships could buy them by the box on the plain card at a lesser price

Nice FFG-9 Black Cat Tom,

 

Although I've always found it odd that they use the HC-9 Black Cats emblem for FFG-9
