Name a US Navy Vessel Honoring Civil Rights Hero Harvey Milk

"On behalf of both the Harvey Milk Foundation and the Milk family, it is inspiring to be joined by leadership in San Diego as we work together in support of the naming of a US Navy ship after my uncle, Harvey Milk. As an American hero who proudly wore the uniform of a Naval officer, the naming of a major vessel after Harvey will add that most american value of equality and democracy to the proud message of inclusion for which military service now exemplifies. This action by the US Secretary of the Navy will further send a green light- to all the brave men and women who serve our nation- that honesty, acceptance and authenticity are held up among the highest ideals of our military." Stuart Milk.
