USS Samuel Eliot Morison (FFG-13)

USS Samuel Eliot Morison (FFG-13)

USS "Samuel Eliot Morison" (FFG-13), the seventh "Oliver Hazard Perry"-class frigate, was named for Rear Admiral Samuel Eliot Morison (1887–1976), one of America's most distinguished naval historians, who wrote more than 40 books on naval history.

On 11 April 2002, "Samuel Eliot Morison" was decommissioned and transferred to Turkey, where she was renamed TCG "Gökova" (F 496) and joined the other G class frigates ("Perry" class) that the Turkish Navy has acquired from the United States.

"Samuel Eliot Morison" (FFG-13) was the first ship of that name in the US Navy.
