Have a Safe and Happy Independence Day!

Published July 1, 2021

Dear Shipbuilders,

As we celebrate Independence Day this weekend, it’s important to step back and reflect on the enormous responsibility entrusted to us by the U.S. Navy. The submarines and aircraft carriers built and overhauled at Newport News Shipbuilding travel around the globe and allow Navy sailors to defend our freedom and our way of life.

It’s a commitment we don’t take lightly. Whether you work on the deckplate, in a shop or in an office, every member of our team plays an important role in ensuring we deliver quality work that will serve our nation for decades to come.

Please take a moment to watch this video that showcases photos from across our shipyard.

Thank you for all you do, and I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend.

Be safe,
Jennifer Boykin
Newport News Shipbuilding
