We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

From Wikipedia: <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Botetourt_(APA-136)">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Botetourt_(APA-136)</a>

On 27 April 1956, Botetourt was placed out of commission and was berthed with the Philadelphia Group, Atlantic Reserve Fleet. On 12 December 1960, she entered the Maritime Administration's National Defense Reserve Fleet at James River, Virginia[1]. Her name was struck from the Navy list on 1 July 1961. Ex-Highlands was sold for $288,166 to Union Minerals & Alloys Corporation for scrapping on 21 August 1974[1]. At 1035 EDT, on 10 October 1974 she was withdrawn from the Reserve Fleet and sent to the breaker's yard[1].
