USS Sioux City (LCS 11):

WASHINGTON (NNS) - Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus will host a ship naming ceremony in honor of the littoral combat ship (LCS) USS Sioux City, June 23, 2013 at 10 a.m. CDT at Sioux City City Hall in Sioux City, Iowa.

The future USS Sioux City (LCS 11), a Freedom variant of the LCS class, was named to honor the patriotic, hard-working citizens of Sioux City and the state of Iowa for their support of and contributions to the military. Sioux City was termed an All American City by the National Civic League because of the balance it struck between community and industry.

MARINETTE, Wis. (NNS) - The Navy and Lockheed Martin, with Marinette Marine Corp., held a keel laying ceremony Feb. 19, 2014 for the future USS Sioux City (LCS 11), the Navy's 11th littoral combat ship (LCS).

The keel-laying ceremony recognizes the first joining together of a ship's components. While modern shipbuilding processes allow advanced fabrication of individual modules, laying the keel represents the formal beginning in the life of a ship. LCS 11 is the first Navy ship to be named after Sioux City, Iowa.

Ship sponsor Mary Winnefeld, wife of Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral James "Sandy" Winnefeld, Jr., authenticated the keel by having her initials welded into a sheet of the ship's hull.

"I'm both honored and delighted to be back in my home state of Wisconsin as the sponsor of Sioux City," said Mrs. Winnefeld. "It's been a real privilege to meet the great Americans who are building this versatile ship, and I thank them in advance for their quality work. I look forward to meeting her crew soon, being part of her family, and bringing our ship to life when she's commissioned."
