The U.S.S. Grand Junction? That sounds awesome. 

Couldn't we have something named after our city? Not sure how to get this done, but the idea is a great one.

Unfortunately, we will not be getting an air craft carrier or a battleship. Either they stopped making them or they only name certain types of ships certain things. For example, according to the website fas.org there is chart that needs to be followed for naming rights.

So, the only chances we have for a U.S.S. Grand Junction is on the side of one of these:

  • Fast combat support ship
  • Dock landing ship
  • Tank landing ship
  • Nuclear guided missile cruiser
  • Nuclear guided submarine
  • Combat stores ship

Those are the only options available. You gotta go with the Nuclear guided missile cruiser, right?
