The USS Cooperstown, a Freedom-variant littoral combat ship of the United States Navy, made its way up the St. Clair River this week.
“Forty years here and I’ve never seen a Warship going under our bridges,” photographer Ronny D’Haene told The Journal. “It’s brand new, too.”
The U.S. Navy accepted delivery of the future USS Cooperstown (LCS 23) at the Fincantieri Marinette Marine shipyard in Marinette, Wisconsin Sept. 20. The ship is scheduled for a commissioning ceremony in New York City before transiting to its homeport in Mayport, Florida.
