At 1 p.m. EDT/ 10 a.m. PDT, we’re commissioning our newest amphibious transport dock ship, the future #USSPortland at the Port of Portland, Marine Terminal 2 in #Portland, #Oregon. Watch on our Facebook page; the link is in our bio.
Fair winds and following seas, Ma’am. #Sailors aboard #USSGeorgeHWBush#CVN77 ceremonially lower the flag to half-mast during morning colors to honor former First Lady Barbara Bush, who passed away Tuesday April, 17 at the age of 92. Mrs. Bush was the wife of former President George H.W. Bush, the ships namesake and also the ship sponsor for the aircraft carrier #USSGeorgeWashington#CVN73. May she rest in peace.
