NAVY OFFICER TRAINING COMMAND GRADUATION
BOSTON — The U.S. Navy has commissioned its newest guided-missile warship, named for a Navy pilot from Massachusetts who received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Korean War.
The commissioning ceremony for the destroyer Thomas Hudner was held Saturday in Boston.
WASHINGTON — In the wake of two tragic collisions that claimed the lives of 17 sailors in 2017, a troubling question arose: What if the U.S. Navy has forgotten how to drive its ships?
After the accidents, reviews found shortfalls in training, manning and deployment schedules for forward-deployed Navy ships.
RECRUIT TRAINING COMMAND, Ill. — When Seaman Recruit Donald Vosburgh left the Texas city of Beaumont for Great Lakes, he thought he was prepped for boot camp.
“Getting through here was a big challenge,” said Vosburgh, who’s now training to become a Seabee. "My dad is a retired boatswain’s mate and I’ve heard about the Navy my whole life, so I thought I was ready for this. But I was surprised just how tough this was, day in and day out.
BOSTON — A U.S. Navy destroyer that will be named for a Navy pilot from Massachusetts who received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Korean War arrived in Boston on Monday ahead of an official commissioning ceremony.
The future guided-missile destroyer Thomas Hudner cruised past Castle Island before docking at the Flynn Cruise Port Terminal.
The fall advancement exams from the guided-missile cruiser Antietam that were lost in the mail last week have been found, rushed by expedited shipping to Florida and are awaiting processing, officials told Navy Times.
“Once the exams are received and graded, those eligible will be selected for advancement just like those announced on Nov. 21,” said Naval Education and Training Command spokesman Cmdr. James D. Stockman in a Monday email to Navy Times. “No one from the announcement has been promoted yet. Actual promotions will be staggered based on a sailor’s final exam score.”
