"I was happy to learn that the USS Somerset will be commissioned in Philadelphia. Commissioning this important ship in Philadelphia, the port closest to Somerset County, is a fitting tribute to the courageous passengers and crew of Flight 93. I look forward to joining Secretary Mabus, Senators Toomey and Casey, Congressman Shuster, Flight 93 families, and fellow Pennsylvanians at the commissioning of the USS Somerset.”

“The selfless sacrifice of the men and women on United Airlines Flight 93 must never be forgotten. It would be a fitting tribute to the courageous passengers and crew to commission the USS SOMERSET, which was named in their honor, in Philadelphia, the port closest to Somerset County.”
