The USS New York has been launched and is on its way from New Orleans to New York where she will be commissioned in early November.
The New York, LPD-21, is a 24,900 ton amphibious transport dock capable a delivering an expeditionary force of up to 800 marines just about anywhere it damn well pleases. The ship was built using construction steel salvaged from Ground Zero at the World Trade Center 9/11 site.
The USS New York is a member of the San Antonio class of Expeditionary Warships and will support amphibious assault, special operations, or expeditionary warfare missions throughout the first half of the 21st Century. Its motto is “Never Forget.”
Let me simplify that for you. If you ever see the USS New York dropping anchor off your shores with hostile intentions, you might as well bend over and kiss your ass good-bye because you are f----d.
