Washington, DC – Congressman Steven Palazzo, (MS-4), today released a congratulatory letter on behalf of the delivery of the amphibious assault ship America (LHA 6) to the U.S. Navy. The ship was built at Ingalls Shipbuilding’s Pascagoula shipyard.  

In the letter, Palazzo stated:

"On behalf of the United States Congress, it is my honor and privilege to welcome the delivery of America into the Navy/Marine Corps fleet. She brings to the fleet awesome amphibious and humanitarian capabilities. She is lethal, and she is survivable, able to withstand some of the toughest blows our future enemies may have to offer. That capability and survivability were built into this great ship by America's shipbuilders—the men and women of Ingalls Shipbuilding. The best warships the world has ever seen are built right here in South Mississippi."
