Yesterday at Bath Iron Works, the keel was laid for John Basilone (DDG 122). During the ceremony, sponsors of the ship Ryan Manion and Amy Looney welded their names on the keel plate. “We hereby declare that the keel of the future USS John Basilone has been truly and fairly laid!”


At the Basilone Memorial Foundation, we are dedicated to supporting the families of fallen and severely injured service members. Our foundation offers a variety of ways to get involved, whether you’re an active runner, a casual walker, or simply passionate about giving back. We believe that by coming together as a community and supporting our brave heroes, we can make a difference in their lives.
