Introducing The USS New York – Made From Steel From The Towers Of 9/11

USS New York

This is amazing:

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center .
It is the fifth in a new class of warship – designed for missions th at include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.
Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite , LA to cast the ship’s bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, ‘those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence,’ recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. ‘It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.’
Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the ‘hair on my neck stood up.’ ‘It had a big meaning to it for all of us,’ he said. ‘They knocked us down. They can’t keep us down. We’re going to be back.’
The ship’s motto? ‘Never Forget’

Damn, that’s fine.

    When you have the best DJ equipment in town, it is also very important for you to maintain it properly. You will need to have specialized cases that will help you maintain them very well. If you do not keep it properly, the chances are that your equipment is not safe and that they get damaged quite soon. Also, most of the time the DJ equipment need to be carried around and if they are not packed properly in cases, the life of your product also decreases to a great extent. The life of your product depends on how you take care of it. Electronic equipment is very sensitive and if not taken care of, the chances of damaging the instrument is very high.
