PAX PROPTER VIM – “PEACE THROUGH POWER”  

line-pink

The Port of Baltimore was the site of the Commissioning Ceremony for the most powerful,
technologically-advanced, United States Destroyer in our history – USS ZUMWALT DDG 1000.

October 15, 2016 

The ship and crew are excited to make their way to their homeport of San Diego, CA!

This FIRST IN CLASS ship introduces major innovations in design: stealth profile, small crew size,
wave-piercing tumblehome hull, state-of-the-art electric propulsion and the latest long-range gun
and missile weaponry. The USS ZUMWALT is unlike any warship that has ever sailed the seas.

whose tenure as CNO was marked by the trail-blazing initiatives to
improve the quality of life for our enlisted sailors.

He took truly bold and unprecedented actions, captured in his famous Z-Grams,
that ultimately opened doors for today’s women and ethnic and racial minorities to enter,
thrive
and succeed in our military services.
