Montana (SSN 794) Keel Authentication
01:44

Newport News Shipbuilding authenticated the keel for the 21st Virginia-class submarine Montana (SSN794) on May 16. The Honorable Sally Jewell, former U.S. Secretary of the Interior and Ship’s Sponsor, was present to chalk her initials onto a steel plate. Her inscription was then traced by NNS Welder Jacob McNulty, signifying the keel of Montana “truly and fairly laid.” Mariah Gladstone, a member of the Blackfeet Nation in Montana, was also in attendance to provide a Native American blessing for the ship.
