USNS Sacagawea (T-AKE 2) Launching Ceremony Pictures -- 06/25/06

On the evening of June 24, 2006 I attended the launching ceremony of the new Navy ship, USNS Sacagawea (T-AKE 2). It is named after the young woman, Sacagawea a member of the Shoshone Nation, who saved the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-1806.

I visited Sacagawea's grave site in July, 1985.

Several descendants of Sacagawea were on-hand (or otherwise represented) for the ceremony and actually christened the ship.

  • Mrs. Lucy Honena Diaz, Sponsor
  • Ms. Rachael Lynne Ariwite, Sponsor
  • Ms. Amy Mossett, Honorary Maiden Of Honor
  • Ms. Jeanette Wolfley, Maid Of Honor
  • Ms. Candice Watson, Matron Of Honor

Below are some of the pictures of the launching ceremony.
