Postscript: The gauntlet of preserving peace and freedom in our day has been passed to the newest Aylwin (FF-1081), commissioned in September of 1971. The 291 crew members of this fast frigate, a proud member of the U. S. Atlantic Fleet, forge yet another link between the name Aylwin and the commitment of those who serve under that name to safeguard liberty for us all.

lenge on 7 December 1941, had been aboard my Aylwin on Lake Champlain. His silent, knowing smile said much of a father’s love and the self less patriotism of the other now long forgotten crews of past Aylwins who made my place and time.
