SHIP CONSTRUCTION MILESTONES
Every milestone in a ship's life brings it one step closer to protecting our nation's borders. These milestones are celebrated by the shipbuilder and our Coast Guard customer.
SHIP SPONSOR, KAY BOWEN WEBBER COCHRAN
The Ship Sponsor's role is to bestow good luck and divine protection over the ship and all that sail aboard. The sponsor is technically considered a permanent member of the ship's crew and is expected to give a part of her personality to the ship, as well as advocate for its continued service and well-being.
Mrs. Kay Bowen Webber Cochran is the sponsor of Kimball (WMSL 756). She is the wife of Senator Thad Cochran, R-Miss.
