U.S. Navy Announces Name For Next LCS | WASHINGTON, DC

WASHINGTON, DC – Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced today that the next freedom-class littoral combat ship (LCS) will be named the USS Little Rock (LCS 9).

Little Rock is the second ship to bear the name of the capital city in Arkansas.

The USS Little Rock (CL-92/CLG-4/CG-4) was originally a Cleveland-class light cruiser that served after World War II, and was one of six to be converted to a Galveston-class guided missile cruiser.

She was decommissioned in 1976 and now holds a place of honor as a museum ship in Buffalo, N.Y

  1. OTOH, naming the “Little Crappy Ship” after some politician would have more appropriate. Little Rock is an honorable name. for a dishonorable ship.
