Monday, June 25, 2007
The USS Trenton has a new name now that it has become part of the Indian navy, according to a report on www.hindu.com. The 570-ft. (174-m) Austin-class amphibious tranport dock became the INS Jalashwa during a ceremony at the Norfolk Naval Station in Virginia. The U.S. Navy launched the USS Trenton 1968, and commissioned it in 1971. The latest in a line of ships named after the New Jersey capital, the USS Trenton aided with evacuations of civilians from Somalia in 1991, Liberia in 1996 and Lebanon last year.
