Navy League Minnesota has sent correspondence (December 2014) to the Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus requesting that a Littoral Combat Ship be named after our capitol city - the future USS ST PAUL. We wish to honor the memory of the award winning, and last all big gun cruiser in the United States Navy. This is a primary 2015 initiative of the Minnesota Navy League Council.
Both classes of LCS are named after cities in America so this fits the naming convention of this class.
The Annual Meeting of the Minnesota Council of the Navy League is Monday, April 20, 2015. Here are the details:
- O'Gara's Restaurant in St Paul, 164 Snelling Avenue North, Saint Paul, MN 55104 (651) 644-3333
