the USS New York

Here SHE is! Notice the two twin towers on top.



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'

I've said it once and I'll say it again..."That is a gorgeous vessel she is simply awesome!"
