USS Somerset Christened in Remembrance of 9/11 Victims
Posted Saturday, March 1st 2014 @ 5pm  by KFBK News

The USS Somerset was christened today in Philadelphia. The ship's name is in honor of the 40 passengers and crew killed when their hijacked United Airlines flight 93 crashed as they fought with Muslim terrorists during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. The plane went down in Somerset county, Pennsylvania. About 5,000 people attended the ceremony. Joan Raymundo was there and says this is great tribute. She goes on to say 'this is a terrific way of showing that the people we lost are still with us and we want them remembered.'
