Navy's Newest Warship

USS Michael Murphy(DDG-112)

CALVERTON, N.Y. (AP) -- The U.S. Navy's newest warship will not be named for a former president, distinguished member of Congress or some historic figure from the past. The USS Michael Murphy, a 510-foot destroyer, is being commissioned this weekend in New York City for a Long Island native and Navy lieutenant who became the first American awarded the Medal of Honor in Afghanistan when he was killed along with two fellow SEALs during an ambush in 2005. He was 29.
