The USS Howard W. Gilmore will be the 50th ship to leave the James River Reserve Fleet to be scrapped. The ship's departure was delayed Wednesday, because of high winds and choppy water. It's now expected to be hauled away later this week. The World War Two-era ship was decommissioned in 1980. The federal Maritime Administration has spent about $99 million removing the ships.
