One of the best ways of honoring the victims of September 11...

...was to build a warship from scrap steel salvaged from the ruins of the World Trade Towers.

The USS New York.

Old news, I suppose, but someone just sent me a slide show with photos of this and other Navy vessels, and it fills me with pride to think that we have turned the very rubble created by our enemies into a weapon to be used against them.

More about the USS New York here.

Thanks for that, Paco, I didn't know about the U.S.S. New York.

I read of this earlier, but it's still good to read.

The motto says it all.

Thanks Paco
