Like the ships built at Newport News Shipbuilding, the American shipbuilders who built them have served our nation in peace and in war, in times of adversity and in times of abundance. Our workforce is diverse, innovative and highly-skilled in their area of expertise. From craftsmen to engineers to various other professions, our shipbuilders take pride in our long standing legacy of “Always Good Ships.”
