PCU Somerset to Honor 9-11 Victims

USS Somerset is named in honor of the courageous passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed near Shanksville, Pa., in Somerset County during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The final of the three U.S. ships named in honor of victims and first responders of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Somerset will join USS New York (LPD 21) and USS Arlington (LPD 24), which are already a part of the Navy's combat force, on March 1 when Somerset is commissioned.
