10/07/2019- Construction of the next Navy warship officially gets underway this week. The Keel Laying ceremony for LCS 27, the future USS Nantucket, will take place Wednesday at Fincantieri Marinette Marine. Polly Spencer, wife of Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer, is the ship’s sponsor and will authenticate the keel. The freedom-class LCS variant will be the third commissioned vessel in US naval service to bear the name Nantucket.
