USS NEW YORK

While sitting on the Mississippi River just south of New Orleans waiting my turn to take my boat into the locks, I looked up and my heart leaped to my throat. I couldn't believe my luck! I grabbed my camera and with tears of joy and pride, took these pictures of the NEW YORK as she idled by. Built of steel from the ruins of the World Trade Center, by a good Louisiana ship yard. The ship is an amazing symbol of the ties that bind us as a nation. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Here is a link to more information about the ship: http://www.ussnewyork.com/ussny_about.html
I stood outside the wheelhouse, hat held over my heart and waved as she passed. May God protect those who serve on her decks.
