Flight 93 Remembered As USS Somerset Commissions In Philadelphia

The US Navy commissioned the new USS Somerset, a San Antonio Class amphibious transport dock, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania earlier today. This ship marks the 3rd of 3 US Warships that were named in remembrance of the 9/11 attacks in 2001. This ship was named in honor of the 40 people who died on Flight 93 when they attempted to stop a terrorist hijacking of their morning flight. As a result the plane crashed in the woods in Somerset County Pennsylvania, and hence the name of the ship came to be.

USS Somerset Named In Tribute To Flight 93The USS Somerset will continue to remain docked in Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing until Tuesday, at which time it will depart on a voyage to its home port in San Diego California. This will conclude roughly a week at dock in Penn’s Landing, where the US Navy has given tours and dedications for those who have come to see the new ship. Now that the ship has been commissioned it will be closed to the public, and begin preparations for the long voyage home to test out its systems.

Of the 40 passengers who died on Flight 93, a good portion of them lived within the greater Philadelphia area, so this commissioning was done at a fitting location. Many of the estimated 5,000 attendees to the commissioning ceremony were friends and family of those who died on 9/11/2001 onboard Flight 93. Had it not been for the courageous intervention of passengers onboard the flight, it is presumed that the target for that hijacking would have been the White House in Washington D. C.  To some in attendance the tribute was a great way to honor the memory of their friends and family, and to pass on the legacy of fighting back against terrorism all around the world.
