Panel Discussion on Urban Design and Placemaking with Christopher B. Leinberger
Five years after its keel was laid down the USS Arlington finally sailed into its home port of Norfolk Virginia where it was commissioned into active service in the United States Navy. It was a memorable and moving beginning to what Arlington officials hope is a long relationship.
The USS Arlington (LPD 24) was commissioned on April 6, 2013, at Naval Station Norfolk. She is named in commemoration of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Steel taken from the Pentagon after the September 11 attacks will be displayed aboard.
