USS New York

Updated, 6:02 PM: Chris Hill, the national director of the Gathering of Eagles, attended the christening today and emailed us to say:

[The] Master Chief of the ship promised to “get some” for all of us, and Gen. Mattis promised to make sure his Marines “Never Forget” the ship’s mission. Not a dry eye in the house all day.
