Faye Sizemore: Forged in Memory
Artist impression of the USS New York, an amphibious assault ship. The USS New York will be LPD-21 and her motto is “Never Forget”
Born now… with tons of steel
cast in the bow stem
… a mighty ship of war
The Twin Towers are no more
… destroyed by a terrorist hand
bringing sorrow to this land
This mighty ship built from the steel
the Towers destruction did yield
Ten tons of shining steel
containing the spirits
of citizens lost
recycled in the USS New York
May it… in duty… sail the seas
honoring forever their memories…
