Default From the rubble...USS New York


USS New York


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'

Beautiful!

May it ride the open waters with the true spirit of Pride and when she and her crew are called upon to stand, may they do so without fail!

God Bless those who serve our country on this ship and in every branch.

Nice! I know how those steel workers felt. We had a piece of a beam from the WTC sent to us to use in a display my co. was building. It was amazing to watch everyone touch it and see the reaction it evoked.
