As the future USS Gallagher, DDG-127 pays tribute to Lance Cpl. Patrick “Bob” Gallagher, an immigrant who enlisted in the Marines and fought in Vietnam. He was awarded the Navy Cross for his heroic actions protecting his fellow soldiers in battle. His legacy continues to inspire.

The heart, skill, and commitment to excellence that BIW employees put into every ship built at Bath are evident. It was an honor to be invited to cut the first piece of steel for DDG-127.

Maine boatyards are world-renowned for their building and repair expertise, & they play a vital role in our economy. Front Street Shipyard in Belfast just opened a new 22,000 sq foot facility— a true testament to the dedicated workers helping to drive the city’s transformation.

It is imperative that the Administration not impede the Mueller investigation. I’m concerned Rod Rosenstein will no longer be overseeing the probe. Special Counsel Mueller must be allowed to complete his work without interference—regardless of who is AG.

Veteran homelessness dropped 5.4% this year, largely due to the HUD-VASH program that provides thousands of housing vouchers. I’m committed to supporting this vital program & building on our progress to ensure that in the land of the free, there is always a home for the brave.

Today in Norridgewock, we celebrated New Balance’s first shipment of 100% US-made athletic shoes for our US military recruits. I'm so proud of all the hardworking employees here in Maine who continue to prove that there is no challenge American workers can’t meet.

I am heartbroken for those who lost loved ones in the violent attack on worshipers at the Tree of Life synagogue. This act of hatred was an assault on our American values. As we grieve w/ this community, we offer our prayers for the wounded, including the brave first responders.

The opioids package that was signed into law today is a major step forward in fighting this tragic epidemic. I’m pleased that my bipartisan proposals to allow the safe disposal of unused drugs in hospice and to bolster peer support networks were included in this legislation.

Sandra Day O’Connor exemplifies excellence in public service, & she continues to be a role model to women & an inspiration to young people. I am saddened to hear of my friend’s diagnosis, but not surprised she is facing it with the strength & bravery that have defined her life.
