SECNAV Names US Navy’s First-in-Class Expeditionary Medical Ship - Naval News
USNS Bethesda (EMS 1) will be the first ship in the new Expeditionary Medical Ship (EMS(X)) class
I would say Name the ships after Navy Nurses and Hospital Corpsman who made a difference and advanced medical care.Now if they can just prevent secnav from naming the ships politically. Naming them after naval hospitals sounds good.
Old Navy Chief here. Get off my lawn!
