Watch this old Navy ship get shot up and sunk | Navy Times

The Durham cargo ship retired in 1994 where it has served for 25 years including the Vietnam War. On Sunday, the ex-Durham provided its final service to the nation when it got shot through and sunk during Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) naval exercise. The footage of the sinking exercise was completed in Hawaii and the Navy adhered to environmental regulations to sink the vessel in at least 6,000 feet of water, 50 or more nautical miles from land. It also ensured that no people and marine mammals are not in the area where they could be harmed during the event.
