The latest San Antonio Class LPD is USS NEW YORK. The mission of the LPD is to transport Marines and their equipment, including AAAVs, LCAC, and MV-22 Osprey. The all-important-and-inspiring difference with the NEW YORK, is that the bow stern is constructed of 8 tons of steel salvaged from the wreckage of the Wold Trade Center.
This is the most fitting tribute to the men and women who lost their lives during 9/11. Send the WTC to the tip of the spear.
