The Navy announced Thursday that four San Diego-based warships will be decommissioned or transferred to the Naval Reserve by the end of the year. But some of the ships will probably be replaced by three new generations of warships that will eventually be assigned to the Pacific Fleet. Cmdr. David Dillon, spokesman for the Pacific Fleet Surface Force headquarters in Coronado, said that two Charles F. Adams class guided missile destroyers, the Henry B. Wilson and the Hoel, will be decommissioned during the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Two Knox class frigates, the Hepburn and Cook, will be transferred to the Naval Reserve during the same period.
