USS Anzio (CG68)

The guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio (CG 68) passes the beloved symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty, while entering the harbor for Fleet Week New York City 2006. Fleet Week has been sponsored by New York City since 1984 in celebration of the United States sea service. The annual event also provides an opportunity for citizens of New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area to meet Sailors, and Marines, as well as witness first hand the latest capabilities of today's Navy and Marine Corps team. Fleet week includes dozens of military demonstrations and displays, including public tours of many of the participating ships. (U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate Airman Christopher Newsome)
