Bangor Daily News: One of the U.S. Navy’s latest generation of shallow-draft transport craft will be named the U.S. Naval Ship Millinocket in honor of Millinocket and East Millinocket, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus said Wednesday.
The U.S. Navy’s third joint high-speed vessel will succeed the USS Stephen W. Groves, a guided-missile frigate named after an East Millinocket flyer posthumously awarded the Navy Cross during World War II, while honoring the town of Millinocket, Mabus said in a statement.
