Description

Mary Jo Myers, Somerset (LPD 25) ship's sponsor, inscribes her initials onto a steel plate at the ship's keel authentication ceremony Dec. 11, 2009 at Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding's Avondale facility. Looking on are L-R: John Vatavuk, county commissioner, Somerset, Penn.; Gordon Felt, president, Families of Flight 93; and Lanford Bridges, Northrop Grumman welder, who later welded Mrs. Myers initials onto the plate that will become part of the ship.
