Reading through this and sold over the weekend on some interest in facts about the ship in what some board.
And I think also to the ship appears to look different from a lot of the other naval ships we've seen you've seen an upfront and personal right now what do you say.
Good morning -- yes we have been standing here on pier 88 along the Hudson River as we have been watching this massive -- take a look at.
Feet wide and yes as you mentioned it does look a little bit different I wanna point.
Our cameraman to the direction of those mass.
They look like big steel -- and that's basically what they are those of the communication towers the -- that you would normally see on a navy ship.
That point out that out all the things sticking out of -- are covered.
Buying this deal and that steel is covering those communication towers basically making.
This warship different -- and that it is more stealth and it is less detectable by radar once it is deployed it is that -- Type of vessel like this in the San Antonio class for the navy and -- -- -- -- that -- taken -- -- you probably -- on fox we certainly got a lot of great pictures for you that we're putting up on our website.
As it made that turn it went under the Arizona -- today as it made its way into New York stopped as you know.
At the World Trade Center site where there was a 21 gun salute.
At first responders from 9/11 and 9/11 family members along with uniform.
Military were standing on both sides of the Hudson.
For that 21 gun salute and then this massive ship went up to the GW bridge.

I -- they contributing to the fight they're down on 9/11 one down there just to lower Manhattan and help clean up and other some sailors on board has said they they it was their job to cut the steel.
That was collapse in lower Manhattan that is now on board the ship I didn't really incredible story about the American military and and duty and sacrifice -- More some who say they they were construction workers in Manhattan at the time and went down rushed down to the site.
To help and decided on that day as they were helping the rescue workers in the rubble that this is going to be.
Yeah they're gonna join the military and it's interesting one.
Article about -- talked about it being a tribute to the victims and also an instrument.
-- is an interesting dichotomy and that's what we have here this is a war on terror ship.
