USS New York sets sail

Ethel C. Fenig
Eight years after the horror of 9/11, the USS New York, a Navy assault ship constructed of 7 1/2 tons of steel salvaged from the World Trade Center, sailed from Louisiana where it was built to New York where it will be formally commissioned. Fox News has the report.
Deputy project manager Doug Lounsberry said the vessel was important to the builders, not only because it honors those killed in the terrorist attacks, but because workers were hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 during the early phases of construction.

Long may it sail and protect the USA!
