The U.S. Navy christened its 67th Arleigh Burke-class destroyer Paul Ignatius (DDG 117) during a ceremony on April 8.

DDG 117 is named in honor of Paul Ignatius, who served as the United States’ 59th Secretary of the Navy from 1967 to 1969. He made significant contributions during the administrations of presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. Ignatius is a living namesake and was in attendance for today’s ceremony.
