    New US Navy Submarine Christened

    (Navy brat here!)

    The most amazing part:
    The Navy's newest attack submarine, the New Hampshire, was christened Saturday, delivered eight months ahead of schedule and $54 million under budget.

    The New Hampshire was christened by the widow of a pilot killed in the September 11 terrorist attacks.

    "I believe I'm looking at heroes," said Cheryl McGuinness of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, looking at the ship's crew. "You all are my heroes."

    Thomas McGuinness was co-pilot of American Airlines Flight 11, which was flown into the World Trade Center's north tower.


    Thanks for the link!!! She's a beauty.

    That she is! My hubby had the honor of working on her.
    The submarine, built by General Dynamic's Electric Boat and Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding, is the third Navy vessel to carry the name of the Granite State
