ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Navy recently completed an innovative, successful experiment with forward-deploying destroyer-type ships for periods of 18-24 months. During the crisis with the Bey of Tunis, the crew of the USS President swapped with the crew of the Constitution so the Constitution's crew could return home before their enlistment expired. It appears to have been established policy under Navy Secretaries James Dobbin and Isaac Toucey during the 1850s and Secretary William Chandler during the latter part of the 1880s.
