Corporate Call to Action:  Education Beyond the Beltway

As the Navy League continues to educate the public on sequestration, it has become apparent that not enough citizens understand the possible effects. It is vitally important that every citizen understand what will happen in every zip code. We've provided the tools to educate and promote awareness on this incredibly crucial issue beyond the beltway. Help us spread the message.

USS Arlington, LPD 24, Commissioning Information 

USS Arlington (LPD-24), a San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, is planned to be the third ship of the United States Navy to be named for Arlington, Virginia, the location of the Pentagon. Like her sister ships, USS New York and Somerset, she is named in commemoration of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Steel taken from the Pentagon after the September 11 attacks will be displayed aboard. Arlington's keel was laid down on 26 May 2008, at Northrop Grumman's Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi. She was launched on November 23, 2010, with her christening on March 26, 2011. Mrs. Joyce Rumsfeld, wife of former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, is the ship's sponsor.
