Buffalo Naval Park passes on USS Little Rock CLG-4 history to USS Little Rock LCS-9

This afternoon, The Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park presented the crew of the newly commissioned USS Little Rock LCS-9 with three silver place settings that were originally housed and used on the USS Little Rock CLG-4. These place

settings will be the only part of the decommissioned USS Little Rock CLG-4 that will be on the newest LCS-9. The three settings are to be displayed in the Ward Room, the Chief’s Mess and a display case for the general crew.
