SecNav Visits Portland
SecNav Ray Mabus (L) and Mayor Hales
Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus recently announced the naming of the USS Portland (LPD27) and a new Virginia class submarine, USS Oregon during a visit to
Portland. It was announced at the site of the USS Oregon Memorial Mast, the Spanish-American War memorial at Waterfront Park. Although
the USS Portland has been under construction of a year, the naming of the USS Oregon came as a surprise. The Portland Council is forming a
Commissioning Committee for the commissioning of the USS Portland in 2017.
