Posted on 11/25/2016 11:07:40 AM PST by PROCON
Future Independence-class littoral combat ship USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10) successfully completed its acceptance trials Nov. 18.
The trials consisted of a series of in-port and underway demonstrations for the Navy's Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV).
Acceptance trials are the last significant milestone before delivery of the ship to the Navy. During the trials, the Navy conducted comprehensive tests of the LCS intended to demonstrate the performance of the propulsion plant, ship handling, and auxiliary systems.
Following delivery and commissioning in Galveston, Texas, LCS 10 will sail to California to be homeported in San Diego with sister ships USS Independence (LCS 2), USS Coronado (LCS 4), USS Jackson (LCS 6), and USS Montgomery (LCS 8).

Yep............obama did this right after she was shot. He did it in a presser if I remember correctly.
So the ship will have no weapons then? POS president that kenyan.
Sickening. Did her puppet-master husband explain to her what a “combat ship” is?
President Trump, one of your First-100-days actions needs to be to RENAME THIS VESSEL!!!!!!
what an INSULT to the great US Navy!
ray mabus is the administration’s toad boy. it will be great to unload this carbuncle on the posterior of the USN — although it will take a decade to undo the damage that his ass kissing has caused.
Why are we naming ships after people that are still alive?! I thought they only occurred after they died. Or did I miss her death?
an LCS is only arguably ready for combat.
Perhap turn the tables on the libs and rechristen it the USS Smith & Wesson. :-)
they aren’t going to rename it. bad as it is, that would just make it worse.
Does it have a big hole in the bridge
This is his way of pissing us off, nothing more.
I know better I think to ask this, but
may a sailor refuse to serve on a particular ship?
I wish a rule or law was passed which banned ships and other stuff from being named after politicians. Yes we give up the USS. Ronald Reagan and others but it would be better than having travesties like this.
No, military members must follow orders.
ha ha! good one!
note: it is usual ... NOT to name anything after a living person....(naming after someone is supposed to be a memorial for them after they pass.........die.....not an honorific while they’re alive)
ANYBODY still alive can turn from living a good honorable life into becoming a crook or thief or rapist or robber or mass-murderer. It is NOT WISE AT ALL to name anything after someone who is still alive!
that is what I figured
what with all the other Obama “transformations” of the military, it was worth asking
