    USS Constitution

    230712-N-IE957-1126 BOSTON (July 12, 2023) U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Robert Dreitz, executive officer of USS Constitution, is given a tour onboard Italian Navy Bergamini class-Frigate Virginio Fasan (F 591). USS Constitution, is the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, and played a crucial role in the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812, actively defending sea lanes from 1797 to 1855. During normal operations, the active-duty Sailors stationed aboard USS Constitution provide free tours and offer public visitation to more than 600,000 people a year as they support the ship’s mission of promoting the Navy’s history and maritime heritage and raising awareness of the importance of a sustained naval presence. USS Constitution was undefeated in battle and destroyed or captured 33 opponents. The ship earned the nickname of Old Ironsides during the war of 1812 when British cannonballs were seen bouncing off the ship’s wooden hull. (U.S. Navy Photo by Airman Austin Jean/Released)
