11/11/09 103 W, 1 I - + 10 - 16 USS New York

A reader passes along the timely information about the USS New York, one of three new amphibious assault ships named after the places in three states that experienced the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. As this USS New York web site notes, special features of the ship include her bow stem that includes seven and a half tons of steel recovered from the World Trade Center's twin towers. Earlier this month, the USS New York was welcomed at its namesake city. Read this AP/NBC story about the ship and its crew and its visit to New York City.

Happy Veterans Day to all those who have served and are serving. Thank you for your service.
