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.

WELCOME!
