Every milestone in a ship's life brings it one step closer to protecting our freedom. From major and minor lifts, to the start of fabrication and keel authentication ceremonies, these milestones are celebrated by the shipbuilder and our U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard customers. As the shipbuilder, we celebrate not only the significance of these milestones in the life of our ships, but recognize the achievements of the men and women of our workforce.
