https://azgovernor.gov/governor/news/20 ... ss-arizona Governor Doug Ducey today released the following statement after the announcement from Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly that a new warship will be given the name “USS Arizona.” No Navy ship has carried that name since the USS Arizona was sunk at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. “Today is a proud day for Arizona,” said Governor Ducey. “It’s been nearly 80 years since the attacks on Pearl Harbor, which resulted in the sinking of the USS Arizona and deaths of 1,177 of her crewmembers. This ship and the name, 'USS Arizona,' hold special meaning for our country, its history and the people of Arizona — and today, that legacy begins a new chapter. The commissioning of a new warship named Arizona honors our past—including those who have given their lives in service to our country—and our future and recognizes Arizona’s important contributions to our nation and its defense. Arizona thanks Acting Secretary Modly for this honor and we look forward to the official commissioning of the new USS Arizona." The new ship planned to receive the name USS Arizona will be a Virginia-class fast-attack submarine, the navy’s latest undersea warfare platform. The nuclear-powered attack ships generally house approximately 130 crewmembers.
