Once upon a time, there were many USNR afloat commands, destroyer flotillas, mine groups, escort squadrons, etc.

Now reservists are rotated and melded to active units instead of being entire ships companies.

RESERVE DESTROYER SQUADRON 30 - US made 4" 1960's

Flagship was the Fletcher class destroyer USS ABBOTT (DD-629)

 

Abbot continued her role as a training platform for prospective destroyer officers until April 1964. On the 14th, she departed Newport for Philadelphia for her last active duty assignment. At Philadelphia, she served as a Naval Reserve training ship for almost a year and as flagship for Reserve Destroyer Squadron 30. She was decommissioned on 26 March 1965 at Philadelphia and, for the next decade, was berthed with the Philadelphia Group, Atlantic Reserve Fleet.
