EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The USS Ingraham and its crew of about 200 sailors returned Thursday to waiting family members at its home port in Everett.

It was the final homecoming for the guided-missile frigate that will be decommissioned in a couple of weeks.

Its final mission was a seven-month deployment with a multinational force fighting illegal drug trafficking in Central America waters.

The 408-foot Ingraham was commissioned in California in 1989 and made its home port at Naval Station Everett in 1994.

The Ingraham operated with the carrier Carl Vinson task force during the Iraq War. In addition to the Persian Gulf, deployments also took it to the Mediterranean.
