USS New York Arrives at World Trade Center

USS New York

The USS New York (LPD-21) arrived in New York harbor in preparation for her christening on November 7th into the United States Navy.

The Vigilant Squirrel Brigade was there to video the arrival and honors at the World Trade Center.

The ship incorporates some steel from the World Trade Center towers which were destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  This steel represents the United States’ commitment to punishing those responsible for the attacks and never forgetting the sacrifice of the almost 3,000 Americans killed that day.

After docking, reporters and the public were allowed to tour the ship.

More on the arrival here and here.

Welcome to New York!  Never Forget!
