We are making an effort to present you with the history of the ship, and news of up coming events. At this point we can provide you with some information regarding the history and current events. The emphasis of our site is keeping in touch with our shipmates and trying to find more. Check this site later, as we will be adding more information.
In the meantime if you have any information of interest that our crew members would enjoy hearing about or pictures, you can contact us at our e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have news or information that you would like to add to an upcoming newsletter you may email us at our newsdesk address: email@example.com.

Anyone who has served in the U.S. Navy can tell you that walking across the quarterdeck of a warship for the first time is a daunting experience. There is much to learn, and a sailor will have to give his best in order to live up to the trust that has been placed in him by the Navy and his fellow shipmates. In addition, any new man aboard is expected to have an understanding of his ship’s namesake, and what that name represents to the Command, the Navy and this country.
