Rubio Welcomes Navy’s Announcement of New Ships Coming to NE Florida

Oct 25, 2016 | Press Releases

Miami, FL – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement today welcoming the U.S. Navy’s announcement that three new ships, including a destroyer, the USS Thomas Hudner, and two littoral combat ships (LCS) – the USS Wichita and USS Sioux City – will be homeported at Naval Station Mayport in Northeast Florida:

“This is welcome news for Northeast Florida’s military community, which plays a vital role in defending our nation. We look forward to welcoming more than 400 sailors and their families who will soon be calling the Jacksonville area home. For those of us who represent Northeast Florida in Congress, today’s news is a welcome development that should give us momentum to finally bring a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to Mayport in the coming years.

“‎Mayport is the second largest homeport on the east coast, and in addition to serving as the Navy’s principal east coast location for the LCS, I am pleased the Navy is increasing its commitment to Mayport with the delivery of a new Areligh Burke Class Destroyer, which I have advocated for throughout my term. 

“Florida must continue to be a military-friendly state, with policies that recognize the national security, economic and community benefits of growing our state’s military presence. ‎Getting rid of the defense sequester is a key part of strengthening our nation and making sure our military is better prepared to confront new threats.”
