“The commitment, dedication and sacrifice of the Officers, Chiefs, and Sailors of tenders lead directly to the exceptional readiness of front line U.S. Navy ships and their crews,” Stanley said. “I am proud to now be a member of this exceptional crew and honored to call you outstanding men and women my shipmates.”

Soon afterwards, Cable was re-activated and refitted to replace USS Holland (AS 32) in Guam, where it remains to this day.
