Re: Naming of newest upcoming Ford-class carrier.
Of course, the first carrier, CV-1 Langley, was named after a person, and CVL-49 Wright after two brothers. Then there were the Essex-class Franklin, Randolph, and Hancock, although all of those could be said to be named after earlier ships that were named after people.
Never thought naming carriers after people was a good idea. I would much prefer a new SARATOGA, LEXINGTON, RANGER, etc.
I think naming a destroyer after Miller would have been more appropriate.
