Re: CVN-81 to be named USS DORIS MILLER
I remember that line from the Sand Pebbles, and it was not true then (the time the story took place) and certainly not true now.
I remember the exchange in The Sand Pebbles , after one of the sailors died in action. One of the men says they might name a DD for him, and another says that they only name ships after officers.
So yeah, an enlisted man. Why not? Better than another pol.
According to USNI News, Ford Class Carrier to be named USS DORIS MILLER, Pearl Harbor Hero.
