28 March 2019: Cincinnati, Oh. - Crew members of the future littoral combat ship USS Cincinnati (LCS 20) wave to the crowd from a float
made to look like a littoral combat ship during the 100th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade. The parade was in celebration of opening day
for the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. Cincinnati Sailors were in the city as a part of a namesake visit by the ship's crew. In photo #4, Engineman
2nd Class Oscar Quiroz high fives the crowd, and in photo #5, Cmdr. Kurt Braeckel, commanding officer of the future Cincinnati, greets two of
Cincinnati's younger residents. LCS are high-speed, agile, shallow draft, mission-focused surface combatants designed for operations in the littoral
environment, yet fully capable of open ocean operations.
