    USS New York made from scrap metal from World Trade Center.



    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 steel from the World Trade Center.

    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 Centerwas melted down in a foundry in Amite , LAto 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.'

    The ship's motto? 'Never Forget'

    Please keep this going so everyone can see what we are made of in this country!

    she's a beauty. I especially like the color. "X's" always look best when they're red. Asthetics aside, I worry that she'll be seaworthy.

    Just Google-search it. It's pretty sweet-looking.

    That was a pretty sweet chain email. Nice use of colors, red x's, beautiful examples of multiple !'s, a masterpiece.

    For those who have seen it the ship is pretty cool. No, it is not the emporer's clothes either.

    WOW!, I must live in a cave or something as I never heard anything about this. Maybe I should wonder of this site and ESPN more often.
