Roosevelt 101kOn October 22, 1996, the Secretary of the Navy, John H. Dalton, named the 30th ship of the Arleigh Burke class ROOSEVELT. The USS ROOSEVELT (DDG-80) is the first ship so named to honor both Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States and the First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt. Mr. Dalton made the announcement at an event marking Roosevelt History Month at the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington. "Naval Commanders found an ardent ally and vocal supporter in FDR," Mr. Dalton said. "As Commander-in-Chief during the most trying period of our nations history, he maintained a clear sense of the mission at hand."Upon FDR's election as President in 1932, Eleanor became a powerful voice on issues from youth employment to civil rights. Eleanor traveled around the world visiting sick and injured service-men, fostering good will among the Allies, and boosting the morale of U.S. Military personnel overseas.Bill Gonyo
