I covered the christening of a U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Thomas Hudner, in Bath, Maine, in April 2017. I wrote the story for the Navy Times.
The ship, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, is named in honor of Capt. Thomas J. Hudner, a Navy aviator who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his attempt to save a fellow pilot, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, in North Korea in 1950.
