Here SHE is!
Here SHE is, the USS New York, made from the World Trade Center !
USS New York
It was built with 24 tons of scrap steelfrom the World Trade Center .
It is the fifth in a new class of warship -designed for missions that includespecial operations against terrorists.It will carry a crew of 360 sailorsand 700 combat-ready Marines tobe delivered ashore byhelicopters and assault craft.
Steel from the World Trade Center was melteddown in a foundry in Amite , LA tocast the ship's bow section. Whenit was poured into the molds onSept 9, 2003, 'those big roughsteelworkers treated it withtotal reverence,' recalledNavy Capt. Kevin Wensing,who was there. 'It was a spiritualmoment for everybody there.'
Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager,said that when the trade center steelfirst arrived, he touched it with hishand and the 'hair on my neckstood up.' 'It had a big meaningto it for all of us,' he said.'They knocked us down.They can't keep us down.We're going to be back.'
The ship's motto? 'Never Forget'
