USS Somerset Commissioned in Memory of Flight 93 Victims

USS Somerset Commissioned in Memory of Flight 93 Victims
US Navy
 
 

The navy ship known as the USS Somerset has been commissioned in memory of Flight 93 victims. Already two similar ships have been named after 9/11 casualties.

The place in Philadelphia where United Airlines Flight 93 fell, while the passengers and crew were tussling with the terrorists, is called Somerset. Recently, in honor of the Americans who paid with their lives during that fateful day on 9/11/2001, a navy ship was named the USS Somerset

“The courage and heroism of the people aboard Flight 93 will never be forgotten and USS Somerset will leave a legacy that will never be forgotten by those wishing to do harm to this country,” stated Secretary of the Navy, Gordon R. England.

USS Somerset commissioning ceremony took place on March 1st, 2014. The able-bodied seamen aboard the giant vessel are to partake in the solemn events scheduled for the week ahead. One of these was working in tandem with a Boys and Girls Club. The other was tending to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. 

It was an ideal opportunity for the sailors to show the family members of the passengers and crew of the tragic Flight 93 what they had in terms of ship-worthy skills. And the locality has many members that are also chipping in their share to make the occasion one worth remembering in silence and dignity. 

The horror of 9/11 has caused many people to react to the inhumanity of the terrorist attacks by giving, loving, sharing and caring for others. Victims and grieving family members not to mention friends and acquaintances all miss the innocent human beings who lost their lives that day when the world changed forever. 

Today, the slogan that inspires the sailors of the USS Somerset is “Courage through Adversity”. Two other navy battalions have been named the USS Arlington and the USS New York in memory of 9/11 casualties. 

The valiant and sacrificing crew and passengers aboard flight 93 fought with the heinous terrorists and foiled their plans to hit a target where innumerable other people would also have been killed in cold blood. 

 

They were 40 in number and their names will go down in golden letters in the history of the United States of America. Seldom has such selflessness and patriotism been seen in the annals of the human experience.
