John McGrath, commanding officer, USS Mississippi.“We have a long history of supporting all of the former USS Mississippi’s,” said Whittington. “Our forbearers in the DAR were there, for example, when the second USS Mississippi sailed up the Mississippi River.”Whittington’s visit is a repeat of history of sorts, according to the state regent. When the second USS Mississippi travelled up the Mississippi River in May 1909, the ship, during a port visit, received a candelabra from the Daughters of the American Revolution, according to Whittington.“Today’s visit is another way to connect our state’s proud history of supporting their namesake ships,” said Whittington.The silver tray was hand-made by Markham J. Frankel, master silversmith. The tray was specifically measured to fit perfectly in the wardroom of USS Mississippi.“On behalf of the crew of USS Mississippi we are honored to receive the hand-crafted silver tray from the Daughters of the American Revolution,” said McGrath. “It will serve as a beautiful reminder of our naval heritage as well as the unwavering support of our many friends in the state of Mississippi.”The former namesake ships to carry the Magnolia state’s name included a paddle frigate commissioned in 1841; the second was the USS Mississippi (BB-23), a 13,000-ton battleship which was commissioned in 1908 and sailed to join the Great White Fleet Feb. 10, 1909 as it returned from its famous world cruise; the third ship to share the namesake name was USS Mississippi (BB 41) when she was commissioned in 1917; and the fourth, USS Mississippi (CGN 40), to share the namesake name was a guided missile cruiser commissioned in 1978.The fifth USS Mississippi was commissioned in its namesake state June 2, 2012 in Pascagoula.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, January 18, 2013; Image: US Navy January 18, 2013 View post tag: Naval View post tag: Dar View post tag: Virginia-Class View post tag: submarine View post tag: Mississippi View post tag: USS Training & Education Mississippi DAR State Regent Visits Virginia-Class Submarine USS Mississippi View post tag: Navy View post tag: State View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Defense View post tag: Defence View post tag: visits Share this articlelast_img read more
