USS Doris Miller (CVN 81)

USS Doris Miller (CVN 81) Naming Ceremony

Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas B. Modly will name a future Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier in honor of World War II hero Ship’s Cook Third Class Doris “Dorie" Miller during a ceremony in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Jan. 20.  In selecting this name, we honor the contributions of all our enlisted ranks, past and present, men and women, of every race, religion and background,” said Modly

Nice to see the Navy finally breaking tradition in carrier naming…long over due.
