On Saturday, the Navy commissioned the USS New York, which was built using steel salvaged from the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Think about this: It’s very likely that this ship will be used to go after the very people responsible for toppling the WTC towers. How awesome is that?
It would even be better if they painted Uncle Sam flipping the bird on the front of the warship. Just for the dramatic effect.
Sidebar: The ship was built near New Orleans by survivors of Hurricane Katrina. If this ship isn’t a symbol of the reslience and strength of Americans, I don’t know what is.
