Navy secretary tours Ingalls

PASCAGOULA, Miss. -- Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer had his first tour of Ingalls Shipbuilding Thursday, his first visit since being was sworn in as the 76th SECNAV in August. Spencer was accompanied on the tour by Huntington Ingalls Industries President/CEO Mike Petters, Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias, and Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant. HII has done “an amazing job of really bringing the art form of shipbuilding to a science,” Spencer said. “If the U.S. Navy has a heart, I would say the shipyards are the blood pumping through that heart.” Spencer later visited the amphibious assault ship Tripoli (LHA 7) and the amphibious transport ship Portland (LPD 27), both under construction at Ingalls.
