The Navy christened its newest Independence-variant littoral combat ship (LCS), the future USS Canberra (LCS 30), during a 12 p.m. CDT ceremony Saturday, June 5 in Mobile, Ala.
LCS 30 is the 15th Independence-variant LCS and 30th in class. It is the second ship named in honor of the city of Canberra. The first USS Canberra (CA 70) was laid down as USS Pittsburgh on Sept. 3, 1941 and renamed Canberra on Oct. 15, 1942. She was named in honor of the Australian heavy cruiser HMAS Canberra, which sank after receiving heavy damage during the Battle of Savo Island. CA 70 was the first U.S. Navy cruiser named for a foreign capital. USS Canberra (CA 70) received seven battle stars for her service in World War II. In May 1958, Canberra served as the ceremonial flagship for the selection of the Unknown Serviceman of World War II and Korea. Canberra was decommissioned in a ceremony on Feb. 2, 1970, at the San Francisco Bay Naval Shipyard. One of her propellers is preserved at the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, while the ship's bell was donated to the Australian National Maritime Museum in 2001.

The submarine community extends our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to Senator John Warner’s family. We are honored that his legacy will live on with the crew of USS John Warner (SSN 785). SSN 785 holds the distinction of being the first Virginia-class submarine to be named after a person—a man who has served his country throughout his entire adult life as a Navy enlisted Sailor, a Marine Lieutenant, Secretary of the Navy, and a U.S. Senator.

Today Dave Arnold (my husband and brother of Michael Arnold) walked for the NAVSEA Virtual Remembrance Run. Wearing the USS America hat, the 197 pin, and NAVSEA Strong bracelets, we talked about Mike the entire time. We miss him. But connecting with the NAVSEA community reminds us that we are not alone in remembering this day. and we will never forget.
I chose the Mount Vernon Trail yesterday for my walk and did a combined Remembrance Walk to remember the victims of the Navy Yard Shooting as well as those from the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and PA. Along the path, I saw the Washington Monument, Capitol Building, Pentagon, Air Force Memorial, and the Navy-Merchant Marine Memorial. #2020runninginremembrance

Hello. I was wondering if anyone could help me? My son is at the NNPTC in Goose Creek, South Carolina and we are a bit confused regarding the visiting protocol. Are we allowed to go visit our son and take him off base to lunch? He told us he can leave the base on liberty days so long as he stays within a 50 mile radius but then tells us we can't visit or take him out due to COVID restrictions. Does anyone have any assistance?? Thanks so much!!
Is there a page for retirees and former employees? Formerly SEA: 00G (wife); 07, 05, 92, 01
My son recently arrived at Nuke School. Are they allowed visitors or allowed to leave the site after a certain amount of time? Thanks
