    USS New York

    NEVER FORGET...!!!
    She will be arriving in NY harbor on Nov 1, 2009 and commissioned in the US Navy Nov. 7.
    If you are planning a trip to NY, you will be able to tour the ship during that week.

    Here she is










    Here SHE is, the USS New York, made from the

    World Trade Center !


    USS New York


    It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the

    World Trade Center.

    It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.

    Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, 'those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence,' recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. 'It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.'


    Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the 'hair on my neck stood up. It had a big meaning to it for all of us,' he said 'They knocked us down. They can't keep us down. We're going to be back.'


    The ship's motto? 'Never Forget'

    Please keep this going so everyone can see what we are made of in this country!


    P.S.
    I did my best with the pics. Don't think I did it right.

    May we use what the terrorists brought down to bring them down!!
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
