SCHENECTADY COUNTY, N.Y. -- It was a historical day for Schenectady County as a piece of their naval history is brought back. The bell of the USS Schenectady arrived in Scotia.

Military personnel from the 109th Air Wing brought the Bell from Andrews Air Force Base in Washington, D.C. The Schenectady was launched back in 1968 and served in both the Vietnam and Gulf War. Commander Mark Junco says it was time to bring the history home.

"This is a great day for Schenectady because it reminds us of our history with the naval and it brings that piece of history back home. Not in a back in Washington, D.C." said Lt. Cmdr. Mark Junco.

The Schenectady was decommissioned back in 1993.
