Navy to commission its newest littoral combat ship, the USS Wichita


Recommended Posts

The Navy is slated to commission its newest littoral combat ship, the future USS Wichita, during a ceremony Saturday in Naval Station Mayport, Fla.

Kate Lehrer, wife of Wichita native Jim Lehrer, former anchor of “The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour” on the Public Broadcasting Service, is the ship’s sponsor. According to naval tradition, the sponsor gives the crew its first order: “Man our ship and bring her to life!” https://www.stripes.com/navy-to-commission-its-newest-littoral-combat-ship-the-uss-wichita-1.563980
