BATH, Maine The mother of a Navy SEAL killed in a firefight in Afghanistan christened a warship bearing her son's name on Saturday as the leader of U.S. special forces said those who died that day would be comforted to know that Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden was killed by the U.S. military.

Maureen Murphy, mother of Lt. Michael Murphy, said "Happy birthday, baby" during remarks from the podium minutes before smashing a bottle of Champagne against the bow of the Navy destroyer on what would've been her son's 35th birthday.
