CHARLESTOWN, Mass. - BOSTON (Oct. 12, 2020) USS Constitution rededicated its Enlisted Dining Facility on Oct. 12, 2020 in honor of former crew member Mess Management Specialist 3rd Class Ronchester Santiago who gave the ultimate sacrifice during the terrorist attack on the guided-missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG 67). 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.
