The Twin Towers Live On… As The ‘USS New York’ Warship

Posted by
October 1st, 2007



The recently completed and launched US warshipâ??the USS New Yorkâ??takes the fight against terrorism to sea.

When I first heard about the USS New York, I was both touched and powerfully patriotic.

The ship was forged from 24 tons of scrap steel taken directly from the ruin of the twin towers.

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.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship’s bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, “those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence,” recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. “It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.”

Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the “hair on my neck stood up.” “It had a big meaning to it for all of us,” he said. “They knocked us down. They can’t keep us down. We’re going to be back.”

It’s also reported that the ship’s motto is “Never Forget”.

While a vehicle of war is not how I want to remember the towers, I do feel that the use of steel in the construction of the warship is very very appropriate.

Peace to us all…
