INDIANA SURVIVOR"Dignitaries gathered at the Marinette Marine shipyard on Monday, July 18 to officially witness keel laying ceremonies for the future LCS Indiana, which will be built in Marinette. Laying of the keel is the official start of a ship's construction. In the photo above, U. S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, of Indiana, greets Dick Thelen, 89, of Lansing, Mich., a World War II veteran who survived the sinking of an earlier USS Indiana in 1945 which is on record as the worst tragedy at sea in U. S. Navy history. Looking on is Donnelley's wife, Jill, who is ship sponsor. In accord with United States Navy tradition, the sponsor had her initials welded into the keel. She is considered a permanent member of the ship's crew and is expected to share a part of her spirit with the ship, serving as an advocate. Looking on is Marinette Marine welder Corey Frankovich, Menominee, who did the ceremonial welding at Monday's keel authentication ceremonies. The USS Indiana will be the 17th LCS built for the United States Navy by the Lockeed-Martin-Fincantieri Marinette Marine team, and ninth in the Freedom class built at Marinette.
