USS Arlington Opens 9/11 Tribute Room


ADM Jonathan W. Greenert, chief of naval operations, joined nearly 400 crew members aboard the amphibious transport dock ship USS Arlington in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks by opening a ship tribute room Jan. 24, according to a Jan. 28 release from the Navy News Service.

The tribute room, which honors the 184 heroes and victims killed during the terrorist attack on the Pentagon, was funded by donations from private individuals, civic organizations and corporate sponsors to the Navy League’s Hampton Roads Council.

The new room is located just aft of the bridge on the ship’s fourth level. More
