William P. Lawrence (DDG 110)
Northrop Grumman Delivers New Warship to the Navy
PASCAGOULA, MS  - The Navy will take possession today of its newest warship built at Northrop Grumman Shipyard in Pascagoula.

The William P. Lawrence (DDG 110) is an Aegis Guided Missile Destroyer, the 28th such ship in its class built in Mississippi. When it was christened last April, the head of Northrop promised it would be the most technologically advanced destroyer in the fleet.

A crew of 300 sailors will man the ship, which is named after Navy Vice Admiral William P. Lawrence, a fighter pilot and Vietnam prisoner of war.
