This ship will be Commissioned in Port Everglades on Saturday 27 July, 2019. Named after the former Secretary of the Navy during the Lyndon Johnson Administration, the ship will be the sixth commissioned in Port Everglades. The time-honored tradition of commissioning a ship is a memorable experience as the officers and crew are ordered to "bring the ship to life" and place the ship into active service. The commissioning of this ship will be special because Secretary Ignatius is planning to be present at the ceremonies, a rare occasion.
