USS New York Receives Official Commission

The amphibious transport dock ship USS New York is commissioned in New York. The ship has 7.5 tons of steel salvaged from the World Trade Center towers forged into her bow, and will be used to support humanitarian, amphibious assault, special operations and expeditionary warfare missions around the world. New York is the sixth U.S. Navy ship named for the state and will be homeported in Norfolk, Va. (U.S. Navy photo/Petty Officer 1st Class Dan Meaney/Released)
