THIS QUARTER'S PROGRAM
THE CONSTRUCTION AND POWER OF
Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) America (LHA-6), the fourth American warship to be named for the United States of America, will be the first of the new America-class amphibious assault ships for the U.S. Navy. Her mission is to act as the flagship of an expeditionary strike group or amphibious ready group, carrying part of a Marine expeditionary unit into battle and putting them ashore withhelicopters and V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, supported by F-35B Lightning II aircraft and helicopter gunships. With a displacement of 45,000 tons she is as big as the aircraft carriers of other nations, and can fulfill similar missions when configured with 20 F-35B strike fighters.
During our luncheon we'll look at the construction of this ship, her future capabilities and the challenges to the officers and crew to bring the ship to life and begin a long service to our country as a United States Ship. Join the Navy League, join us for lunch, and help us help those who serve us 24/7/365 around the world, alway on watch. Welcome!
