USS Minnesota Day on Saturday
To the editor:
All Americans, but especially Minnesotans, should salute and welcome the latest super Navy vessel, the USS MINNESOTA SSN 783, to our fleet. It will be commissioned on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013. The $2 billion nuclear submarine is the most advanced warship of all time and it carries the name MINNESOTA. To show our pride in this great ship and its grand name, wouldn’t it be great if all veterans of the United States Navy would wear their caps on Saturday and that all citizens wear something with the name MINNESOTA on it?
I will be wearing my Navy hat on Saturday.
