Navy christens newest attack submarine in Conn.
Can't have too many of these with the invasion of Iran right around the corner. :D
GROTON, Conn. (AP) -- The Navy's newest attack submarine, the New Hampshire, was christened Saturday, delivered eight months ahead of schedule and $54 million under budget.
The New Hampshire was christened by the widow of a pilot killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
"I believe I'm looking at heroes," Cheryl McGuinness of Portsmouth, N.H., said, looking at the ship's crew. "You all are my heroes."
Thomas McGuinness was co-pilot of American Airlines Flight 11, which was flown into the World Trade Center's north tower.
