The picture I posted above was of The U.S.S. San Antonio - Hull #17 The New York Is Hull #21 below. They are virtually identical as they are sister ships. The Navy is commissioning two other sister ships to the New York, named Arlington (LPD-24) and Somerset (LPD-25) to likewise commemorate the other two attacks at Arlington, Virginia and Somerset, Pennsylvania. When all three are at sea, I'm certain there will be photos taken of them in formation.
