lpd_precious_cargoKeeping our military safe takes a ship as formidable as the LPD 17 San Antonio class of amphibious warships.

The brave Sailors and Marines who protect our nation’s security deserve nothing less than a ship that is adaptable, flexible and reliable. Most importantly, they deserve to serve on ships that can take them harm’s way and bring them safely home.

They deserve a class of warships as capable as LPD 17.
