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.

The ship's motto? 'Never Forget'

Nice looking ship...

Pretty disgusting, how can you serve on this ship under the guise of protecting America's heart and soul... yet sailing on something built from facism.

Works for me,

Government sponsored tragic event, creates a weapon of war waged for government sponsored corporate expansionism.

I wonder if the soliders assigned to this ship are die hard patriots? who wouldnt question the very steal to which they depend on..

How can you sail on a boat that was made from pieces of people in it? How can you sell people's remains to a different country for their cement?

Money is everything. How sad.

Where are all the guns to fight terror with? Is this a troop ship or a fighting ship?

Its a troop transport ship, and deploys teams directly into combat.

It most certainly would come with various electronic countermeasure systems and a minimal defense armament ; but the real weaponry is on the other ships it is deployed with.

LPD is a designation for a troop transport basically, correct me if im wrong


LPD = Landing Platform Dock

Linkage to the external source please? I've long thought that a ship built from the remains of a tragedy would be a very cursed ship indeed. I'd like to dig around and see how many people died during construction of it.

Awesome! Thank you, Muzzleflash. You've saved me endless hours of searching. I find that google and I don't use the same words to find the same information. Although it does lead me down some interesting roads. (that's more than a one liner, right?)

Back on topic, it's a very pretty ship.

Someone told me to let go of Sept.11,2001. “Just forget about it” they said.
I had this to say to them:
“IF you can remember shortly after September 11th, 2001,
there was this common phrase that was ringing my ears and
I’m going to assume it was ringing YOUR ears too.
In fact, there is a very strong chance that you uttered
the very exact same phrase I am writing about.
The phrase I am talking about, I thought, was a promise.
A promise that I had personally made to myself. I have kept my promise. Have you kept yours?”

Why does it matter? I'm sure a lot of the people that died would be honored.


Typical of people around here lately, making a mountain out of a mole hill.


Beautiful ship I must add.
