The U.S. Navy’s newest littoral combat ship, the future USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10), departed the Austal shipyard in Mobile, Alabama, May 8, and headed to her commissioning site in Galveston, Texas.

The ship’s commissioning is scheduled for June 10, after which she will begin her transit to her eventual homeport of San Diego.

As part of her sail around, Gabrielle Giffords will conduct regularly scheduled equipment and systems checks, training, visit several ports and transit through the Panama Canal.
