1994 DOD Manpower Requirement Reports only 900 SAM in the Navy of 500,000 Personnel. There were 3000 Units a SAM could be assigned. Of those 3000 Units only 16 FFGs would even have the possibility for a SAM assigned a billet. Statistically it would be extreme rare assignment. I am still looking for another SAM on a FFG.

I was a SAM on a FFG as an OS. Can’t really find any information about the program.

Started in 84 and went to USS Gray FF-1054 then the Wadsworth FFG-9 after that. Being a SAM always got some strange looks. Would love to know what you’ve found out.

Are you still tracking this? I want to send you some information about the SAM program and the FF’S AND FFG’S from DOD reports and get your feedback. I think you will find it intriguing. Wasn’t the Wadsworth in San Diego? I was on the Sides and Copeland. PO3 Todd Stokes

Still here. The Wads was out of Long Beach but we spent a lot of time by San Diego
