USS JOHN P. MURTHA - maybe not
Hoping that the FBI investigation may help Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus reconsider his decision to name LPD-26 USS JOHN P. MURTHA. The contract to build the ship was awarded to Ingalls Shipyard on April Fool's Day 2011. Many in the Navy thought it was an April Fool's Day joke. Sadly, it was not. I am hoping that the FBI investigation will convince SECNAV to change his mind.
There is still time to do as Former SECDEF Gates said - "Do the 'hard right' instead of the 'easy wrong'."
