“Today they share in the honor of delivering this ship on the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and are able to take a moment to honor the men and women who will continue to carry on the mission that John Finn and his fellow sailors fought so bravely for.”

HII has delivered 28 Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer ships to the Navy and currently builds an additional four destroyers.
