USS New York LPD 21 Ship's Crest by ussnewyork.


The Jerseyman has been in touch with the commissioning committee for USS New York (LPD-21), containing steel from the World Trade Center. In asking about the ship's bell she will carry once commissioned on September 11, 2009, we were advised that USS New York (LPD-21), has made a request to install the ship's bell from battleship USS New York (BB-34).
