Navy to name new vessel after city of Yuma

PHOENIX -- U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona is praising the Navy's decision to name its latest Joint High Speed Vessel after the city of Yuma.

McCain said the naming is a "worthy recognition of the people of Yuma and all they do to support the men and women of our military."

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said the next three such vessels will be named USNS Yuma, USNS Bismarck and USNS Burlington.

The Navy said the so-called Joint High Speed Vessels are transport vehicles that serve in support of overseas operations, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and special operations.
